See Life Thriving Inside a Century-Old Shipwreck
See a historic shipwreck that's been transformed into a thriving marine refuge. The SS Cuba sank to the bottom of the ocean near San Miguel Island, southwest of Santa Barbara, California, in September 1923. All of the crew and passengers survived. The wreck is now inside the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, a protected US national park. Sealife has moved in, making the ship a perfect habitat for fish and ocean flora.
