The latest artificial reef and wreck in the British Virgin Islands has something extra special on board.

The wreck of the Kodiak Queen features an 80-foot/24-meter sculpture of a Kraken climbing all over the wreck.

The project is the brainchild of Owen Buggy, who located the ship off the island of Tortola. He approached Sir Richard Branson, who agreed to sponsor the project.

The Kodiak Queen was one of the last surviving ships from the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941.

The wreck now lies in the water of the island of Virgin Gorda, and it is hoped that the transparent sculpture of the Kraken will be a host to variety of transplanted corals. The project is titled the BVI Art Reef.
