The 728 ton steel steamer SS Courier was launched in 1887 and finally scuttled in 1928 north-east of the Ships’ Graveyard. She now lies in 42 metres of water, and is an accessible dive to deep-trained recreational divers. The centre section has collapsed, exposing large boilers, but some limited penetration is still possible around the box and stern sections for wreck qualified divers. Divers can still see the original bow rails and much of the wooden planking.
