The Witconcrete shipwreck
The romantic historical story would have been how we spotted a poor ship that got shipwrecked as it hit the shallow waters of the reef about a century back. The reality is that this 375 feet ship which was used as a cargo ship most of the time has been recently purposely sunk (after it outlived its purpose) so that corals can have a lively place to settle and grow off from and divers would have a fantastic spot to explore!
I liked the false historical story better 🙂
Incidentally, to give you an idea how clear the water is… the ship is actually completely under water!!
