Wreck sites are fascinating places to explore underwater. Some are purposely sunk as artificial reefs and others have gone down due to accidents, either way, these unique places offer habitat to marine creatures and they teem with life just a few years after coming to a rest on the bottom. Not all wrecks are ships, though many are, they can also be planes, cars, trains, and even the occasional school bus. Whether large or small, deep or shallow, wreck are exciting.
