Diving inside the ship!

It's an amazing diving. I went there with Unique Sports of Aruba and the Master diving was an expert guy. He took us into the ship 45 feets.

I dove this wreck with my PADI instructor and I here to tell you it is the first time that I ever experienced the beauty of the ocean life at this level. I can't wait to get back when I have a chance.

It was fun to snorkel this. The water was pretty rough the day I went but fun none the less. Not good for first timers though
