Wreck Marine Life

It was a great experience to spot a Conger eel in the donkey boiler of the Volnay Wreck. They can apparently bite your fingers off, so we didn’t get too close!

The Volnay wreck is a WW1 boat in Porth Kerris, Cornwall, and sank 24/12/1995. There were no casualties, and many locals had an unexpectedly plentiful Christmas Lunch due to the tin cans that washed up on the beach.

We didn’t observe as many fish down at the Volnay (20m) as Porth Kerris Reef, but there were still a few around.
