While it was interesting to visit my first shipwreck, there was not as much to see at this site. The wreck is a little deeper in the water and in the middle of the ocean, where the wind and waves are stronger. Worth a stop if you are on a snorkeling trip, but not for younger or weaker swimmers.

Need to take a tour or a boat to this location. Great snorkeling site with tons of fish. If its rough out it can be a little tougher for a newer swimmer.

This was by far my favorite snorkeling site. It is deep down to the wreckage so I would love to scuba dive to see it all better. The water was much clearer here and we saw some different species of fish than at other sites. Some of the fish here were much larger and we spotted a few good size... More

All what you expect from a morning in Aruba! Thank you!

We snorkeled for 1/2 day and we were over the antilla for a little while. We couldn't believe the amount and types of fish. The history behind the sinking of the Antilla is interesting and it was very cool to swim over the ship, I'd imagine scuba diving would be really amazing. My family enjoyed this one!

My husband and I wanted to snorkel and this catamaran voyage offered 3 stops plus a full lunch and open bar. From the moment we got on the boat, we felt right at home with the informative and...

Amazing dive site. We set off with unique sports and it was great. There were loads off fish and coral to see. If your good enough, your dive master can take you through hole in the wreck aswell!

Snorkeling around the sunken ship was cool. This seems to be the stop of all the snorkeling cruises,. As we were there many others arrived.
