It was not an accident: the objective of the specialists was to submerge the intact vessel to serve as an artificial reef for endangered species. Over the years, the boat was covered with sponges and corals, and thousands of fish pass through it. The Hickory, which is about 20 meters deep, is today one of the biggest attractions in the park. But the Hickory is not the only attraction of the national park, it also has another sunken ship-museum for diving. In the waters of the park, which reach a depth of 180 meters (590 feet), you can see three reef terraces. The corals form true red and yellow orange carpets that impress the most demanding diver.
