Mystery and curiosity:
Shipwrecks have always fascinated
divers with their mystery. When a diver
approaches a shipwreck there is a feeling
of curiosity. How did it get there? What
was it carrying? What men once lived and
the remains of sunken ships tell marine
archaeologists about man's history. A wreck
diver willing to research archives may find
the history of a favourite shipwreck and
add to it by sifting through clues on the
Aquatic Life: Shipwrecks
quickly become artificial reefs (some ships
are sunk intentionally for that reason).
These wrecks attract new underwater life
& provide new habitat. In many areas,
shipwrecks are among the best places to
observe aquatic life.
Photography: Thanks to
their structures, the life that inhabits
wrecks tends to attract photographers trying
to catch the perfect shot.
