The many reefs bordering the coastline are incredibly hard to navigate, so it’s no wonder that WA is home to an abundance of shipwrecks abound with marine life- a divers dream combination.
There are a number of vessels in WA that have been expertly scuttled, and although some are relatively new they are quickly transforming as the sea creatures move in, making it exciting for divers to visit annually.

All kinds of marine animals have made it their home, including King George whiting and brim (best spotted around the hull). The highlights of the wreck can be found in the depths; the inquisitive salmon fish practically pose for photos, and the coral formations are steadily growing, giving you a different experience after a prolonged absence.
The Esperance coast is considered among the best diving locations in the state. It’s home to the famous Sanko Harvest shipwreck – the second-largest dive wreck in the world and a vital habitat for marine life such as blue groper and red snapper.
