The Nebo:

Location: 30o 15, 20 S, 30o 49,00 E

This wreck struck Aliwal shoal 20 May 1884 and sank with its cargo of railway materials. No lives were lost and she lies bottom up in about 30m of water. It is fairly intact and makes for an interesting dive. On this wreck kingfish, salomon and all the usual tropical fish will be sighted.

Beware of the fire corals on these wrecks as they cause nasty burns which results in blisters lasting for weeks.
