Not a fan of wrecks. Missed the goliath groupers. Some nice sponges on the ship. No pesky current. I am not a fan of wrecks, so it didn't really float my boat (YOU SHOULD PARDON THE EXPRESSION)! HAHA

The wreck was cool. Saw the resident Goliath Grouper. About 5 feet long and hundreds of pounds. Saw a field of garden eels. Incredible dive location!
