The Salem Express lies on her starboard side near the Hyndman reef at a depth between 12 and 30 meters. The wreck, a former Roll on Roll off Ferry, is no less than a 100 meters long. The ship was built in 1966 and sank in December 1991, after an unfortunate collision with the Hyndman reef. A dive in the Salem Express is a unique experience. The bow and the screws are completely intact. You dive on various lifeboats while you look in through the portholes. The Salem Express is an official sea mans grave; for that reason you are not allowed to enter it.
