An exhilarating dive for advanced divers, the Catuan Wreck site was formed in 2006 when the 108 foot tugboat sank on December 12th. Over the years the wreck has transformed into a stunning marine habitat of coral gardens where large schools of fish, crabs and other aquatic life swim through. Due to the depth at which it is located – 60 feet, the wreck is only suitable for advanced divers who can swim around and even inside the wreck. Growing on the wreck are multi-colored corals that make for a beautiful reef and if you have a waterproof camera, you can capture some amazing photographs of the life under the sea.
