Ledge point is host to some of the most unique wreck sites in the world including the Vergulde Draeck commonly known as the Gilt Dragon, the JP webb, the Manakoora and the famous Key Biscayne.
The most popular dive is the Key Biscayne, located 250 degrees from ledge point about 10 nautical miles, in 40 meters of water, experienced divers recommended. The 2700 tone oil rig capsized in 1983 while undertow from the Northern territory to Fremantle in severe weather, all 52 crew members aboard were saved by rescue helicopters.
The Gilt Dragon is located 12km south west of Ledge Point about 5km off shore. Excellent diving in calm conditions. It struck reef on the 28 of April in 1656 on a trading voyage to Jakarta, with a crew of approximately 193 and a cargo of trade goods and eight chests of silver worth hundreds of thousands of guilders, only 75 crew reached the shore with very few provisions. The master of the vessel Pieter Alberts ordered seven of the crew to sail to Jakarta for help, the journey took six weeks. They returned with a search party, no survivors were ever found.
JP Webb is located 1.5 km west north west of Ledge in about 3.5 metres below the water. A thousand ton barge, lost on route to Melbourne from England in 1951, unique with its large steam engine, the boiler clearly visible from the surface. The wreck is easily accessible in good conditions. And finally, a fishing boat stolen from Fremantle in 1946, ran aground 3 km south of the town, only half km from the shore, not much is left of the vessel but the reef is a nice dive for beginners and easily accesable with small crafts.
