Dive to unknown wreck at 75m off Durban, South Africa.

First trip to document the Ghost Fleet of Durban is wrapped. Four dives completed over nine days, bitten somewhat by the weather. This video shows the last dive to explore an unknown wreck believed to be a Union Castle vessel in 75 meters of water. She is lying upright, with her bow broken off, probably as a result of impact with the bottom. We were graced with clean water and no current, which made for a phenomenal dive. Bottom time of 30mins, total run time of 110 minutes. Thanks to Patrick Voorma, Allan Maclean, Celeste Voorma, Bradley Wright, Brian Sellick, Vinayak Maharaj and the Calpso Dive and Adventure Centre team for a great experience. And to Justin Jennings for letting me drive his baby.
