Twin Barges Wreck is located near Mahe Island and is best suited for CMAS*/OW divers. These two barges were sunk on purpose at the foot of the Corsair Reef in 1989 by the Association of Professional Divers of Seychelles. Over the years these barges have become heavily encrusted with hard corals, fan corals and sponges and now shelter an abundant marine life. Since currents are low to none night dive here is also available.
