Wreck Description: Everyone that Ive met that has been to the Barcoola describe it as 'the best dive I've ever done' The place is an absolute freak of nature with an indescribable amount of large marine life . The Barcoola is a Trawler which snagged its nets and rolled over about 8 years ago, not that remarkable in itself, but becuase it is the only ''reef'' in a vast desert of sand it attracts a phenomenal amount of life, an ecosystem all its own, a must do!
