The Antonio Lorenzo Shipwreck

Experienced divers love it, The Antonio Lorenzo shipwreck is down at 40m, not far from the 'Le Grand Tombant de la Pointe au Sel' dive site. The Chilean longliner was caught fishing illegally off the Kerguelen Islands... It was purposefully sunk in 1999 over 38m of water, at the request of the French Diving Federation. Since then, it slipped a little bit on the sandy bottom and is now resting on its side, around 50m. The coral is slowly growing on it but the fish life has settled around it.
