 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): This wreck was sunk in March 2003 by the PGDA (Puerto Galera Dive Association) and sits upright in 30m of seawater. She was an inter-island freighter that was prepared especially to make a dive site and reef habitat. There have been several large holes cut into the deck and any hazardous items removed from the inside to make it ideal for penetration.

The hull was originally constructed from plate steel and there are many bulkheads inside to hide Moray Eels and thousands of tiny Commensal and Cleaner Shrimps. The upper decks were constructed from structural steel and timber but over the years all the timber has rotted away leaving the skeletal beams in place as a reminder of her deck lines.

The helm of the vessel can be found lying on the deck but the ships wheel is long gone. Towards the bow a mast stands proud and is clad now in Oyster Clams and hard corals. The beams of the main decks are also clad in hard and soft corals with several small Gorgonian Fans and Sea Whips swaying in the current. At the stern a large cleat has a line buoyed to the surface.

A myriad of fish gather here at the wreck and call her their home, Trumpet Fish, Fusiliers, Rabbit Fish, Sweetlips, Snappers and Batfish are all here in abundance. Strong surface currents are sometimes prevalent at this dive site; always descend with the buoy rope in sight whenever possible. Great for wide angle photography, this site is one of the signature dives of Puerto Galera and not to be missed.

Great biodiversity - It is a deep dive through buoyancy line to an artificial reef.  Many fishes and some big one (No Sharks or Mantas).
