The Lankayan Wreck was once a Sulu Sea fish pouching boat that was confiscated by the authorities and sunk in 1998. The wreck now sits upright in 30m of water and acts as home to thousands of fish both big and small. The steel rails and most other areas are encrusted with corals, sponges, barnacles and clams. Small reef fish shelter inside the hull. Bigger species are bumphead parrotfish and grouper that patrol outside the hull. Barracuda can often be seen in the blue water away from the wreck. Ornate ghost pipefish are resident on the wreck. Between April and May it is possible to see whale sharks. Currents are usually mild. Visibility is not great, between 5m and 15m.
