Whether sunk on purpose as an artificial reef or the result of mishap, wrecks open fascinating windows to the past. Most divers find wrecked ships, airplanes & even automobiles nearly irresistible because they’re intriguing to explore, exciting avenues of discovery and usually teeming with aquatic life.
