A WWII Wreck, the Hardeep formerly known as ‘Suddhabid’ was used by the Japanese to carry freight. The 80m ship was sunk as a result of a bombing raid by the RAF on 1st May 1941. Now the entire structure of the wreck is encrusted in heavy coral growth and makes a lovely 'cavern' dive. Both large forward and aft holds offer safe, well lit penetration dives & the large steam engine has been removed through a purpose cut hole in the side making access to the engine room easy. The Hardeep is often frequented by turtles and rays, and an emperor angle fish now calls the wreck home.
