A “Purposely Sunk” dive wreck in 2003, with a maximum depth of 18 metres and 55 metres long and with 107 species of marine life recorded (including Humpback whales, Turtles, Skipjack, Western Blue Devils, Wobbegong and Port Jackson sharks, Tuna, Dhufish, Boar Fish and more!).
The ” Lena” was fishing illegally in Australian Antarctic waters in early 2000s – she was chased to South Africa and back before surrendering – one of the longest sea chases in maritime history.
The “Lena” dive wreck is accessible to Open Water Certified divers and many who have dived on her have rated the dive “as on of their best”.
The Lena Dive Wreck is an easy swim-through with no silt and with excellent visibility and the variety of marine species make this a very enjoyable dive experience.
The wreck is only 35 minutes from Bunbury’s Casuarina Boat Harbour.
There are also magnificent stands of corals on various reef sites, also within 35 minutes of Bunbury – between 10 metres and 20 metres maximum depth.
Bunbury’s dive sites are best accessed between October and May, although their “winter” months (June to September) host some very pleasant days suitable for scuba diving.
