The Camia II was intentionally sunk on January 8th, 2001 in 30 meters of water just off the west shore of Boracay in the Philippines. The wreck of the 30 meter long cargo ship is resting on a sandy bottom at a depth of just less than 30 meters with the top at 18 meters below the surface of the water. The ship has turned into a great artificial reef and is now home to scorpionfish, trevallies, red bass, fireworms, nudibranchs, copper sweepers, schools of batfish, and other interesting life. This video includes a swim-through of the wreck and footage of the life surrounding this great wreck.Read More
