Sunk in March 2003 near the Asia Divers pier in Puerto Galera, the MV Alma Jane Express was a 60-ton, 35m (115ft) steel-hulled cargo ship built in Japan in 1966, she sits upright at a depth of 30m (98ft). After being dropped off, divers descend via a mooring line to reach the wreck. Compared to my first visit in 2004, there had been a significant increase in marine life on the vessel’s superstructure. Fish life was more abundant as well. In addition to the ever-present batfish and lionfish, a shoal of bigeye trevally can be observed cruising around the wreck, attracted by the abundant shoals of baitfish on which they feed. The upper decks lie at depth of 22m (72ft).Swimming through the ship’s hold revealed vast numbers of cardinalfish hovering amongst the numerous steel beams.
