The Hickory lies tilted slightly towards its stern at a depth of 18 meters and is covered in sponges and hard corals. Its rooms, whether above or below deck, are easy to see and they house many glass and glasseye fish. Moray eels have found their homes in the wreck´s many nooks and crannies. Soldier fish prefer the inside of the wreck, while sergeant major fish used to being fed by divers can even get on your nerves as they swarm divers. The wreck is also home to many small species and offers the photographer a great opportunity for close-up shots. Approximately 30 meters from the wreck, one can find a canon and an anchor from the 17th century, lying here waiting for their decomposition.
