A reasonably large car ferry which sank in 1997 after hitting Anemone Reef – a nearby dive site. Like many wrecks, it quickly became a natural reef and as well as being covered with sponges, and anemones, it provides a refuge for morays, schooling fish and even some reef fish. Inside it is full of sweeps.
Above the foredeck outside, a school of Fusiliers part like a curtain as a diver passes through.
Down on the deck in a more sheltered spot, you’ll find Lionfish floating in corners and in the pipework look for eels – like this fimbriated moray.
There are few mid-sized reef fish, but not as many as you might expect.
But there are plenty of nudis – more than you would expect, like this lovely dark margined glossodoris.
Though the wreck might look a bit drab on first appearances, take a good torch and you’ll see it is in full techno-colour – not just black, white and grey.
