The story behind this is that the ship Yolanda hit a reef (now named after it). I think this was some time in the late 70s or early 80s. Its cargo was bathroom fittings, mainly toilet bowls and baths. The wreck itself was washed into deeper water in 1987 and now lies at 202 metres, beyond the reach of all but the really crazed techincal divers. The toilets and baths, on the other hand, lie heaped up in huge mounds in relatively shallow water. At some point mischevious divers have arranged a few of them into this underwater rest stop. Caron and I dived it from the Blue Fin liveaboard last week and couldn't resist the photo opportunity.
