Bermuda’s fringing reefs have claimed hundreds of vessels over the centuries.
These shipwrecks have shaped the history of the island and what was once a boat captain’s nightmare is now a wreck diver’s dream destination.
I loved diving the shipwrecks there and The Mari Celeste was one of my favourites.
She was a civil war blockade runner and paddle wheel steamer which sank in 1864 with only one casualty.
Today, she sits in 55ft of water and is one of the only vessels of her kind to have both paddle wheels still intact which I found was a great site for photography.
