Point Loma Sailboat Wreck Debris Cleanup

2012-08-15 - San Diego - Point Loma Sailboat Wreck-3

Update 2/2014:

Although swells have long since reduced the Chelsea Lee wreck to a debris field, the rocky reef structure at the wreck site remains a favorite destination for divers due to its dramatic wall topography and rich marine life.

Treasure!
