This artificial reef is now home to a host of marine life. Jewel coloured anemones cling to the rails in hues of purple, yellow and blue. Crayfish can be found hiding in the wheelhouse and depending on the time of year it is not unusual to find schools of snapper and kingfish hovering about the aft deck. This is a safe wreck dive suitable for certified Advanced Open Water divers.
