New wreck sunk in Stuart Cove, Bahamas – video

Diving paradise, which undoubtedly are the Bahamas, lived to see another wonderful attraction for diving tourists. We are talking about a new artificial reef, which turned into a ship “Atlantic Breeze”, which was sunk off the coast of New Providence Island.

The sinking of the vessel measuring 75 metres was the brainchild of Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas and was carried out in recent weeks. The new wreck, after being cleaned and prepared, went down without a hitch and after ‘settling’ on the bottom, was made available to the diving community.

The Atlantic Breeze vessel began its life as a fuel tanker designed to carry gasoline, oil and LPG in the Bahamas. At the end of her service, the vessel was offered as a gift, with the purpose of being sunk as an artificial reef. Of course, care was taken beforehand to ensure that all traces of fuel and oil were duly removed.

The latest wreck is at a depth of 16.5 metres. “Atlantic Breeze” joined the impressive sunken Bahamas fleet of over 30 vessels! All the vessels have gained new life in the waters of Stuart Cove after being retired. Among the previously sunken wrecks were two sister vessels of the “Atlantic Breeze” – the “Carib Breeze” and the “Tropic Breeze”.

Unfortunately, in our country on the Vistula, we can only watch artificial reefs grow and bloom in diving paradises, stimulating the development of underwater ecosystems and attracting tourists from all over the world. This year it has been 10 years since the sinking of our “Bryza”. Despite the enormous and unflagging popularity enjoyed since the sinking of the only artificial reef in the Polish part of the Baltic Sea, for a full decade it has not been possible to take another step and sink more vessels.

On the one hand, there is no shortage of wrecks in the Baltic Sea, but those available are scarce. Not to mention the number of items suitable for training and familiarising beginners with wreck diving. Fortunately, in the nearest future we may expect changes in this subject. You will read more about opening Baltic wrecks in interview with Tomasz Stachurain the 9th issue of our magazine.
