Spot on. Agree completely and am also voting for reefs![b said:Quote[/b] (Lou @ Aug. 14 2003,13:42)]D'ya know what? I haven't voted, because I can't pick between the two. My biggest reason for diving is for the marine life, but you get that on a wreck, plus some interesting places to look, all within a small area. However a beautiful reef is far nicer to look at than a wreck but might have less poking around opportunities - better viewed from a distance as it were.
Ok, I'm voting reef, because if we had a choice to keep only wrecks or reefs in our oceans it would have to be reefs.
For some reason, that reminds me of the poem:[b said:Quote[/b] ]...but the wrecks are battered, and so have been most of the fish!!
It is, in many places. How about diving with mantas, whalesharks, hammerheads, dolphins, orcas and sealions, all in one week? I did that in the Sea of Cortez (Mexico).[b said:Quote[/b] (Rob Evans @ Aug. 15 2003,00:47)]The flora and fauna would have to be staggering to compete with the underwater scapyards.
