Wreck Description: In 18 meters of water on a flat sandy bottom lays the wreck of the Barque Centurion. She sank in January 1887 whilst being towed out through the heads. There is not a lot remaining of the ship today, but the ballast, anchor chain, pieces of mast and ribbing still makes for an interesting dive. There are still a number of brass pins that held the ship together to be found, and this is one of the few sites where the Pineapple fish can be seen.
