Submitter Comments:
In Union Bay there is a 100ft steel barge at 60ft that has been down for many years. This shore dive has tonnes of life including giant octopus. This is the shore dive on the wreck of the MV Zebalous a 60ft Seign wooden boat @ 50ft. The historic site of the government wharf that has been dismantled is between 40 and 20ft us home to many fish, octopus, moon snails and millions of porcelain & glass objects including hand blown opium vials (left by the oriental railway workers) that have been discarded where the old steam ships once docked.

07/08/2005 Bryan Heit (Avg: 2.87 Review) - An OK dive, although vis can be highly variable. Hit this one at high tide for best vis. It's a long slog out to the wreck, although there is a lot of interesting debris along the way. It is a little strange coming up onto this wreck - you cross a desert with nothing but a few crabs and debris, and all of a sudden you're facing this rectangular island of life.
