The Het Huis Te Kraaienstein is known as South Africa's oldest wreck. Best visited by boat, this old wooden hullen ship sank in 1670 after running aground in Oudekraal.
Today she is broken up and her remains scattered over a wide area on the sandy seabed. It takes a good look between the kelp, to discover the few cannons, an anchor and some pieces of wood which have survived.
Beautiful corals and spectacular display of marine life is what now envelopes her. Excellent bottom topography and great site for photography.
