    A Shame!! Farewell to Seven Skies

    Just learnt a shocking news from a friend that Seven Skies Wreck located at the South China Sea, used to be the divers' (OC/Tech) favorite playground is now GONE!!! Due to illegal salvagers!




    What is left now is only messy wreckage.


    RIP.... Seven Skies!

    I suspect there isnt many of the `local` wrecks that havent been salvaged recently.

    we have only heard about the ones that have been visited by divers regularly

    its a a shame that after all these years in such a short space of time so much has been lost

    I saw the pics/video clips of ravages of Seven Skies, it is indeed like losing a long time friend! Heard the first two levels were gone (including the kitchen and laundry area), just hope those people will STOP these and leave the rest of the levels alone.

    Very Sad. I Was actually on one of the dive boats that weekend. Sadly this is not the first time that the wrecks have been salvaged and with the claim of China over the South Sea surrounding these area will only compound the intensity for more wreck and reef destruction.

    On the plus side there will be less boats tempted to take open water trainees out there...

    We're hoping to head back to look at the Perth soon, there was a very similar salvage barge nearby when we found the forward guns gone last year. Happening everywhere now

    Hard to see how this is a plus. There are a lot more OW divers than Rebreather divers globally and the only way to stop the destruction of reefs and dive sites will be through the help of public opinion. The more Open water divers in Asian waters the better the future will be.
