Wreck of "Sophie Rickmers"

"Sophie Rickmers" was built in Germany in 1920 and has been lying on the sea bed of Pria Laot Bay in Pulau Weh since May 10, 1940. Today this huge wreck is the home of giant groupers, giant morays and jacks. . Most special fish to try and remember to notice, is probably the black-spot angelfish (Genicanthus melanospilos). Usually rare to find because of its preference for deeper waters, its fairly abundant on this wreck, if you just dont forget to look for it.
