May 13, 2008
Scuba diving is a beautiful sport that allows its fans to feel better on both physical and psychological levels. Some of the most adored attractions offered by swimming under the waters are the visits around wrecks. Wreck diving fills the person who practice it with a pleasant sentiment, a combination between curiosity and surprise. Shipwrecks succeed in transporting the divers in time and allow them to feel they touch a part of history. For some divers there is nothing more interesting than swimming around a new shipwreck filled with history. The beauty of the shipwrecks has no limits to them so they constantly choose to practice this type of scuba diving.

The world has plenty of beautiful places where divers can swim around the most extraordinary wrecks but there are some that are more famous due to wreck diving. Palau is one of the worlds' diving destinations that offer to its divers the most interesting wrecks from the period of the World War II. Because the Japanese occupied the area during the war and the U.S. forces attacked them, we can nowadays discover under the waters of Palau plenty of exciting wrecks. Some of the most popular in Palau are the wreck known as Iro Maru and the destroyer USS Perry that sank in 1944 and was not discovered until the year of 2000.

Australia is very well-known in the divers' world especially due to the Great Barrier Reef. However, this is not the only beautiful thing that Australia has to offer when it comes to scuba diving. Many divers choose this destination for its wreck diving as its waters shelter old ship wrecks. SS Yongala was a passenger ship that sank because of a cyclone and was discovered by people in 1958. Since then, the extraordinary ship that is used as a home for many sea creatures gets more and more visitors every day. HMAS Brisbane, another famous wreck of the Great Barrier Reef, was used in both the Vietnam War and the first Gulf War and it can now be visited by scuba diving in Queensland's waters.

Another awesome destination for wreck diving is Cozumel, better known for its drift diving. Felipe Xicotencatl, also known as C-53, is very popular for wreck diving in this area. Since 1999 this ship is a beautiful wreck to be visited by divers, along with other interesting wrecks such as Patzcuaro or Laguna Mandinga. Those who love practicing wreck diving love visiting Aruba too, which is famous for its delightful beaches. The German Antilla, sank at 60 feet, is often visited by those who practice scuba diving in Aruba.
