Marietta Dal (Wreck)

The Marietta Dal was a 7500 tonne liberty ship built in the USA in 1944 and is one of the most interesting shipwrecks off Brisbane. On May 15 1950, the 140 metre long ship was carrying a cargo of sulphur, oil, tractors and other general cargo when it ran aground on Smith Rock.

Completely broken up, the remains of the Marietta Dal are now found in 10 metres to 18 metres and make for a fascinating dive.
