The Bridge

wreck hitting bottom of sea

The Bridge is a site near the Dutch entrance to the Simpson Bay lagoon that hosts several yacht wrecks as well as the remains of a old bridge. The remains of the bridge have been completely taken over by sea life and this is what makes the dive worthwhile! Chance to see stingrays, turtles, eels and tropicals. Most recently, the former floating bar JabJabs now is the third artifical reef to join this site.

As the bridge is not really that big by itself, a few diving school got together and scuttled several boats there as well. The combination makes for an oasis of life underwater.

As it happens, this is also the site of our coral nursery. we have relocated our ‘Acropora’ coral fragments from the damaged coral nursery to their new tree here.
