The HMVS Cerberus (Her Majesty’s Victorian Ship) was scuttled in 1926 to serve as a breakwater on Half Moon Bay, just southeast of Melbourne, Australia. Before it was deliberately sunk, it served in the Victoria Naval Forces, Commonwealth Naval Forces and the Royal Australian Navy from 1871 to 1924. Sitting in about 10 feet (3 m) of water roughly 650 feet (200 m) from shore, the Cerberus is now a popular site for scuba diving and has been used as a training site for combat swimmers.
