Discovering the Meteor Wreck

 

Repeat: The Meteor Wreck is the wreck of a Russian hydrofoil ferry which sank in 2003. It measures about 30 meters long and 9 meters wide. The wreck originally sank largely intact to a depth of 17 meters, but a subsequent storm destroyed it and opened it up. Nonetheless, you can still see the passenger seating and even try them out for some funny pictures. There is normally a shoal of big barracuda around the wreck and often large rays or even electric rays. When the season is there, we often see Angel sharks and even butterfly rays. Rarely, we can also see a tub gunard, which loves to walk on the sandy bottom with its lovely colored wings.

 

The wreck is almost completely covered in a large shoal of roncadores. The engines of the Meteor Wreck are also in plain view and seem to be a favorite of the octopus. Most of the time, cuttlefishes can be found around the wreck and an abundant amount of small fishes. On the side of the wreck, you can find a toilet, but it's out of use.

 

Make sure you come and discover Meteor Wreck with Let’s Go Diving and its hard boat ATLANTIS!
