Divers from the Qatar Dive Club arrived to sample lots of Seychelles Dive sites and chose Aldabaran Wreck, Shark Bank and Brissaire as their favourite three. In one week Brain did 20 dives , followed closely by Stewart and Mark with 16 and 14 dives each . We do offer three dives a day with 2 each morning and 1 each afternoon and with a night dive included the numbers soon mounted up.
This wreck is certainly our deepest dive site with the tops of the mast at 28 meters and the sandy bottom at 41 meters so it is for experienced divers only who have good air consumption and use dive computers.
We like to use this site as the deepest dive of the PADI deep diver specialty as it is close to shore , often without current and an ideally focused site .
We can also extend bottom times by running a 28% NITROX mix keeping us within our 1.4 oxygen limits.
Shoals of bat fish, fusiliers and many small grey peppered morey ells can be seen immediately you reach the wreck.
White Gorgonian fan coral has taken over the mast and rails and as an artificial dive site it is doing extremely well!
