The Karma – Scuba Diving Site, Lady Musgrave Island
The Karma scuba diving site is a large 42m long, 450 ton gravel barge that sank off Agnes Waters in 2003. She was owned by a scrap metal dealer and was on her last voyage.
The engine broke down and she ran aground on a beach south of Agnes Waters. Karma was high and dry for a few weeks before being dragged off by salvage operators. She was in dire straits, so permission was given to sink her nearby and she settles upright on a sandy bottom, 28 nautical miles north west of Bundaberg and 15 miles south of the town 1770.
Within a year of sinking huge amounts of fish life were attracted to the wreck, often big schools of golden and big eyed Trevally. Divers often find they can’t see the wreck for bait fish as they descend. Giant leopard rays can be found in the sand. Divers can explore the inside of the hold and wheelhouse.
