A nurse shark has been seen sleeping in near the remains of the propellers at the bottom, and a grey bamboo shark has been spotted at the opening around the middle level at the stern. Hundreds of scorpionfish are usually camouflaged almost everywhere on the barnacles and rusting steel of the wreck. Along the stern, hovering lionfish area a common sight, and divers may find themselves surrounded by schools of trevally, snapper, rabbitfish, fusilier at the top of the wreck.
