The Story of The wakashio (with photos)


The MV Wakashio ran aground on the coral reef at Pointe D'Esny. We were approached by concerned authorities to offer our expertise and knowledge of the marine conditions of the region to assist them. We were on the scene by 8pm on the same day.


The dive centre was put at the disposal of Polyeco SA to store booms and other equipment needed to prepare for the upcoming oil spill.


With the effort of other parties the booms are dispatched.


The beginning of the disaster.
