You really need to be in first to apprecaite this wreck.
It is a massive big upturned hull that you enter from the back and swim through (so lights needed). There's not much inside.
Your bubbles dislodge all manner of creatures (hence the get in first idea). Some of these are pricly so wear your hood (or keep moving).
It's relatively safe. You can see you exit through the broken hull midships at all times. there's huge schools of glassfish here so your photographers will find some good shots here.
Once out you can follow the reef back up at your leisure to finish the dive. you'll easy get an hour in all.
