In the late 1960s or early 1970s, Australian Wally Gibbons blew up the bow section of the submarine in search of booty. The front one-third is basically destroyed with the remaining section still virtually intact. At about the 18 meter level you can enter the submarine and penetrate right through to the stern. At the stern you can see the submarines dive planes, rudder and propeller shafts. The return dive can be done on the outside.
