Augustin Fresnel Shipwreck

 

This former Lighthouses and Beacons Service boat, 53m long over 9m wide was built in 1940 in Canada. It was sunk for the divers to enjoy in 2003.

The bottom lies around 30m and the descent/ascent is done along a sole line attached on the bow. If you're up to it you can also venture inside and swim past the old rroms, the galley and the messdeck!
