Secrets of the House Reef

In October 2007 Baros created its own shipwreck by sinking an old wooden diving boat that has now become one of the highlights of the house reef. Rewarding divers with enchanting encounters, the wreck lies at a depth of 18 metres and can be easily accessed from both sides. It is already home to a 2-metre nurse shark, a marbled grouper and a few moray eels. The Marine Centre at Baros has started colonisation (by various organisms such as sponges, sea squirts, algae and in the longer term, coral) on the wreck, making this an interesting and ongoing project. The resident Marine Biologist at Baros is observing the wreck and monitoring its coral growth, and believes that due to the excellent condition of the house reef, different species of corals will grow and gradually become a natural extension of Baros’s already dazzling reef.
