The Larena (Wreck)

The Larena wreck is a Japanese hospital ship which sunk in 1945 and lies at 30-35m. The wreck is truly is well preserved. Located close to the Larena pier, it can be subject to strong currents and poor visibility.

Strong currents made it hard for growth, but, never the less, there is a small variety of coral grown on the ship, and inhabiting reef fish.
