The Rainbow Warrior was Greenpeace’s flagship.On its way to protest France’s nuclear testing on the Mururoa Atoll when it was sunk by French saboteurs on July 10, 1985, in Auckland Harbour. After the bombing Greenpeace gifted the Warrior to the sea and she now lies as an artificial reef in the Cavallii Islands, a refuge for the marine life she was sunk trying to protect. At a max depth of 26m the Warrior is now home to a huge variety of aquatic life and is a world renowned dive site.
