Swanee Reef / Mexico

Swanee Reef, @ Sebastian Herbi
Swanee reef was acknowledged as one of the most interesting dive sites of the Cortez Sea. Small depth, good visibility and abundance of marine life ensure pleasant diving. At the very bottom divers can find Salvatierra wreck that sunk 35 years ago. A huge steamer is hardly visible because of the corals that have entirely covered the remnants. This wreck attracts plenty of reef fish. To avoid the repetition of the tragedy the place was marked on the map.
