North of the Mahi, directly off Poka'i Bay, lies a twin engine Beechcraft nicknamed the Seaplane Wreck. It was sunk as an artificial reef project and its bare fuselage lay within a horseshoe-shaped ridge at 90 feet. The horizontal rear stabilizers are missing, the engines and propellers have been removed and the inside of the cockpit has been stripped - except for the instrument panel. A missing window on the Pilot's side makes a good photographic set-up. The top of the ridge is at a depth of 80 feet, which drops to a rubble base and then slopes to a depth of 110 feet. The ledge has small cracks and fissures that are home to crustaceans, tropicals and moray eels.
