Storms and winds, dangerous currents and coral reefs conspire into a navigators nightmare and have been the downfall of shipping over the centuries. Add to these ships sunk in war and its easy to see why our sea beds are littered with Ship Wrecks of all classes, shapes and sizes.
Today many divers make the most of them whether it’s a historic wreck or purpose sunk artificial reef. Some destinations are known as wreck graveyards with a high density of wrecks like the Straits of Gubal
wrecks in Egypt’s Red Sea
, the ghost fleet of Truk Lagoon
or the Philippines Coron Bay
. In other destinations the wrecks are widely dispersed, like the Maldives
where there may be just one notable wreck per atoll. Then destinations create wrecks as artificial wrecks like the Cayman Islands
with its two fabulous wrecks.
Whether you are a die-hard ‘Wreckie’ or just fancy including some wreck diving to your diving holiday we have something to suit you.
