The Salem Express is a big wreck that makes for a very eerie dive. You cannot help but be aware of the massive loss of life here as you swim over the lifeboats that lie on the sea bed. Somewhat surprisingly there is little in the way of coral growth considering that it has now been submerged for over a decade. There is a little growing on the top but barely any on the sides of this huge ship. There were quite a few boxfish and pipefish and the occasional lone jack. All in all an impressive dive due to the size of the wreck, but not one for those who are hoping to see marine life. Perhaps the marine life can also sense the feeling of death that lingers over this graveyard.
