HMS Bounty was sent to the Pacific Ocean under the command of William Bligh to acquire breadfruit plants which were to be transported to the West Indies. Here lie the remains of this ship from after the mutineers burned it in 1790. The remains were discovered in shallow waters by a photographer, Luis Marden, more or less undisturbed for a century and a half. Some of its artifacts are on display in the community hall. Today tourists can dive onto it if willing to risk the dangerous swells of the bay. Another wreck, SS Cornwallis can also be explored.
