A story goes around that in the 70s ‘Malayan,’ a fishing vessel got the heavy brunt of a strong typhoon & smashed onto the shallow reef top at the southwest side of Tubbatahas’s north atoll. It is now called the Malayan Wreck and has settled on the shallow reef top.
The wreck has a marker float where divers begin their early morning dives as a school of about 30 – 50 adult harlequin sweetlips give welcome at 3 – 5 meters.
