The wreck is a twin engine landing craft used by Vietnamese refugees in the late 1970's. It sunk upside down on a sandy bottom at 22m. Their is a mooring line attached to the stern which makes a good descent/ascent line and it's needed if you are diving the wreck in anything other than slack as the current can be quite strong here. Even with a slight current it is still possible to dive the wreck on the lee side. The top of the wreck is covered in a mass of soft corals and is a good area to spend some time in once you have been around the wreck, which wont take long as it's quite small. There are also some small pieces of wreckage in the sand a few metres from the stern and these seem to attract huge Stonefish and Puffers.
