The Seli 1 was a Panama-registered Turkisk bulk carrier that ran aground off Bloubergstrand shortly after midnight on September 8 2009.
Authorities battled to deal with the wreck as oil needed to be pumped out while the coal which it was transporting also had to be removed.
The ship also caught fire in June 2010, ignited by the cutting torches used by salvors.
It was broken into smaller sections, and the final installment of the process was carried out in 2013, when the remaining portions were blown up, allowing the remainder of the Seli to sink below the waterline.
Vaughan Harris and Barry Boswell were keen to see what the wreck would look like two years on since that final episode, and due to the adverse diving conditions for the area, had to wait until conditions were optimal.
On Saturday 7 February 2015, they managed to conduct a 40-minute dive to the wreck, at an average depth of 10 meters and with poor general visibility, they managed to capture video footage of how Mother Nature has, in just two short years, managed to turn it into an artificial reef filled with marine activity.
They posted this video shortly afterwards:
Harris says the dive was extremely technical in nature due to the unprotected location.
