Shipwreck Dive Site in Alor Islands Indonesia
« on: April 09, 2015, 07:16:20 PM »
Few days ago we got shocking news that a cargo ship sank in Pantar Strait, between Pura and small Kepa Island. Accident happened due to complications in a strong current, subsequent hull leak and sinking of a boat. As we understand, boat was first a grounded on pinnacle formations that are rising to the surface (one of pinnacles is famous dive site Kals Dream but it was not touched by this incident). Fortunately the crew of 16 (including captain) was rescued by local fishermen and authorities from Kalabahi - Alor.



Whirlpool, created by strong currents, engulfed the boat and pulled it to greater depths. We have not been to the location yet, but our source tells us the boat might be around 40mt depth, still visible from the surface.
