    The RMS Quetta sank in 1890 in The Torres Straits in Far Northern Queensland. The sight has very large tidal changes, ripping currents and low visibility. On the day that the guests and crew of Mike Ball Dive Expeditions, Spoilsport dived it, we were blessed by outstanding conditions and an expected 20m's of visibility. All of this footage was filmed in one dive. Being 116m's long, it was a lot to cover. I wish I had had more time to pay attention to the finer details. The tragedy that happened when the Quetta sank, those that lost their lives, the stories of the survivors, the preservation of the wreck, the prolific marine life, all make diving RMS Quetta one of the most evocative dives that will remain etched in my memory for a long time to come. I look forward to 3rd of October 2013 when Spoilsport returns to The Torres Straits to dive this amazing wreck again.
