The Delsan Wreck dive site gets its name from a small ship that whilst is not deep enough to dive, is now home to many large fish. The site, however, is very popular because of a large open gap in some nearby coral found at around 30 metres. Called “The Cut,” the large gap is now full of marine life and home to large pelagic fish and many types of shark.

The currents on the wreck are strong and so the dive is completed as a drift dive that has a plateau at around 10 to 15 metres, and then descends down to a maximum depth of 30 metres. Visibility is normally very good and can reach around 30 metres.

Around the wreck, divers can expect to see lots of great macro life such as many different coloured nudibranchs, juvenile reef fish, crabs, shrimps, and many other crustaceans. Frogfish, sweetlips, and snappers are very common on the wreck and the marine life here with its protection from the wreck, is definitely thriving.

Around The Cut, there is usually a group of grey reef sharks located in or around the gap in the reef. It is also common to see Tiger sharks patrolling the area. Divers can also expect to see schools of trevally at the edge of the reef and white tip reef sharks circling the reef. The sandy bottom can often be over looked but it can often contain a hiding marble ray.
