The Chikuzen is a wreck which sunk in 1981 after catching fire, and is now a popular scuba diving site. It drifted through the British Virgin Islands before finally sinking 12 miles north of Scrub Island. It is literally miles from anywhere. At approximately 246 feet, it is a large wreck and still relatively in tact. Although it is still structurally solid, it has relatively few areas that can be penetrated. Because it is so far from any land mass, it has attracted quite a variety of marine life. Because of its slightly remote location, some local dive operators do not run trips to the Chikuzen.
