Dived to only 25m but you still get to have a good look around. I went with Allan Power Dive Tours & they were really good & looked after us both. I can recommend them without any hesitation.

If you are into diving than this is worth your while. Ideally go with a group as you get to go as a group and it is much more fun. The Experience is great and something different.

This has to be a 'must' on every divers agenda. The scale of the wreck is amazing and swimming through the ship to 'kiss the lady' was incredible. Also highly recommend s night dive to view the flashlight fish
