The wreck of the Aquarian lays in about 14m of water off South Stradbroke Island. It is currently fully exposed but there have been times where the wreck was almost completly covered in sand.
On 1st of May 1986, Malcolm Taylor, an experienced fisherman and skipper tragically lost his life during the sinking of the fishing trawler. The Seaway Tower wasn’t build at this time but its construction was instigated by Malcom’s brother Bruce, hence what all locals know as the Seaway Tower is formally called the ‘Malcolm Taylor Tower’.
Gold Coast Dive Adventures holds a Morton Bay Marine Parks Permit that allows us to scuba dive within the marine parks boundaries. Therefore, we are able to visit many wrecks offshore from South Stradbroke Island including the Aquarian.
