The vessels are scattered throughout the crystal clear waters, and some of them date back to the 1850s.

There are several wrecks that are perfect for open water viewing, snorkelling, and even diving, although divers should be aware of regulations before visiting.

You can even spot the shipwrecks on some of the glass-bottom boat tours, which offer closeup views of the underwater ruins.
