About The Haerlem Wreck

Wreck Diving on the Haerlem Wreck in Algoa Bay is an experience not to be missed. Here you can see the Leopard Sharks, Cat Sharks and Pajama Sharks swimming gracefully in their artificial home.

Cape Salmon and Batfish can also be spotted here along with a variety of other sea life such as Heart Urchins and the very popular Crowned and Black Nudibranchs.

A torch will come in handy when spying through the ships old portholes in search of the magnificent marine life that lies within.

The reef was created when a South African Navy Frigate was sunk here in 1987. The deck is split in two and is 18 meters long. No diving into the ship form the broken deck is allowed at any time.
