The Wreck of Corbin is a protected area in Baa Atoll. It is well-known for being the vessel that brought French sailor and memoirist François Pyrard de Laval to the country. The Corbin was a French ship of 400 tons, which set sail from St. Malo with the Croissant on May 18, 1601, in search of trade with the east. Along with an extraordinary dive experience, this wreck also carries a rich history that's worth discovering.
