Details: Attempt Number Two at trying to find the Victoria Towers Wreck. This time i was going to do a more systematic search after closer study of maps and gps coords. I walked down the beach about 500m from the path and swum out about 200m. I then worked my way back towards the path searching the reef for signs of the wreck. At one point, two pitted eye cavities stared up at me from the reef – a large skull shaped rock that seemed like the remains of a prehistoric primate – King Kong’s ancestors perhaps. Was this a bad omen? A portent of my impending death? Naa…a sign of adventure, shipwrecks and…. treasure lol I knew i was close ;) Sure enough i came across a hole littered with bottle bases, then just out the back i came across the sweeping hull of Victoria Towers sprawled across the sand. As always, i was nearly out of air when i found it, so i surfaced and tried to burn the location into my brain for next time.
