The Empire Tana aka the Lees Wreck was a Liberty ship but also acted as part of the World War II Mulberry harbour. It has broken into two large pieces, known as Inner and Outer Lees, off Ballyhenry point at the sheltered end of the Strangford Narrows. It breaks the surface at low water and sits in l0 meter of water. Once famous for its tame conger eels, it is teeming with life resembling "a garden full of colour". It is carpeted from stem to stern inside and out with a huge variety of marine life. It is one of the favourite dives in Northern Ireland.
