Diving On New Caledonia Ship Wrecks

DCIM100GOPRO
Desending down to 84 feet to go through a old French navy ship 150 feet long. I saw no guns but did see the 50 cal. Shields. It was very cool to see the ship come into view as we desended down onto its deck.

This ship was sunk by the navy to make more habitats for reef fish. But all the same it was fun to dive on. On our way to the ship there was old canon shells on the bottom of the reef that had not exploded but were not dangerous to be near.

Ok lets go inside!

We entered the port side of the main deck where we went down inside to the dinning hall. DJ my dive master had me sit down for a picture. We then went toward the after of ship through a long hallway.

I looked right and left into the kitchen, watch stations, and berths and out onto the stern sub level deck.

Exiting from the ship looking up into the sun and DJ taking pictures.

You can see what DJ was trying to capture some really big subjects.

Ok so now on another dive that same day we dove on on this 200 foot processing fish boat that was sunk by the French Navy, I guess the French Navy get bored and blows stuff up!

Looking over the deck at 50 feet. This was a bit more shallow of a dive and very comfortable.
