Wrecks

 

As there are few wrecks located close to mainland Great Exuma, Dive Exuma sunk a wreck of its own in 2005.

In addition, we can arrange charters to include the Comerbach wreck located in between Long Island and Conception Island.

THE TUG

The Tug is the location for Dive Exuma’s local wreck dive. It is a 65-foot long tugboat that was sunk in 2005 by the company. The goal when sinking the tug was to create an artificial reef to provide more habitats for declining species. Sponges and corals have now encrusted the tug and it has become “home” to several Nassau grouper and Caribbean spiny lobster (crawfish) and a 5-6 foot long green moray eel. Schools of horse-eye jacks and bar jacks are regularly seen at the sight along with barracuda, colourful blue chromis, parrotfish, spotted drums, French grunts, and schoolmasters. Less common sightings include permit and mackerel.

COMBERBACH WRECK

This is the wreck of a 110 feet long freighter, that attracts schools of jacks above its massive structure. The maximum diving depth at this site is 100 feet. Located in waters off Long Island, this is one of a few man-made wrecks that can be found in the area.
