We have dived the Antilla so often it is sickening. We really didn't want to go again...but the dive scheduled went there. The good thing was that the divemaster Bart from Unique Sports of Aruba made this dive spectacular. He took us in and around the wreck like we had never seen before. For a 50' dive this turned out...

Unfortunately, it was a cloudy day when I went to snorkel at this site. Visibility was poor and I could not more than halfway down. On a clear sunny day you can see the entire wreck and sandy bottom. I've been there twice before and it is definitely an experience. Just go on a sunny day.

The Antilla Wreck is about 54 feet down and is incredible to view. I used Red Sail Sports and the dive leader was great.

This was my first experience snorkeling on a wreck site. The wreck is shallow enough to see and enjoy.

I did snuba (not scuba) here and it was good, but we don't go all that deep, but it was still great! Quite incredible seeing a ship wreckage under water... loved it!

The shipwreck is cool to snorkel above..I wish I had brought something for the fish to eat. Our excursion was packed with people and there were 2 ships in port..Maybe it wouldn't be crowded if the ships were not in port. Still pretty!

Best Dive we did in Aruba. Wish it had been a smaller group. We explored around the outside of the ship and then did a cut through the center but it is too smashed up to go in and explore. From what the dive master said it was possible to dive through a section of the ship before Hurricane Ivan.... More

One of the coolest things we did snorkeling was to go and see the shipwreck- it is a bit rough out there BUT worth it all- you will be amazed when you go just below the surface and BOOM_ there she is - -enjoy

If you are going to Dive in Aruba, you have to dive the Antilla. This was my first non-shallow reef dive, and it literally look my breath away. Pictures and video you find on the internet just don't do it justice. There are plenty of creatures around to see, just the pure size of the ship is unreal. I also... More
