Sunken Russian Frigate

Fairly easy wreck dive. If you are so inclined there are several swim throughs that don't require a wreck cert. Look for the HUGE grouper midship.

Wreck diving is one of my favorite types of diving. This wreck is great for both the beginner and more advanced wreck diver.

...with quite a bit of wildlife - could easily be an advanced dive if divers choose to penetrate. Easy access via mooring lines - little current when we were there - very impressive and fun wreck - portions shallow enough for intermediate level divers - interesting patch reef to one side with a nice swim through.

It was quite cool to move around, and in if we wanted during this dive. Lots of fish, in 30-60 depth of water and we were surprised to see and follow a large turtle. It was a piece of history we enjoyed.

My husband loves wreck diving and I am learning to like it more and more. Boat had some good swim throughs for him. Good fish life. Great photos to be had. It helped to have a great dive operator! Would dive again if we come to the Brac.

Decent bar food, but the pina colada and margarita I tried were very poor quality...and not inexpensive.

Coolest wreck dive. Old Russian destroyer with AA guns and missile launching tubes , now all coral encrusted with lots of aquatic life.

This is a great wreck dive. Decommissioned Russian frigate sitting on a sandy bottom next to a reef wall. Broke in half during a hurricane a few years ago but the two halves are very much intact with the every present schools of brightly colored fish, coral, sponges, clams, anemones, and a couple of huge grouper. We also had turtles... More

What a great dive! This wreck has something for everyone, from the biggest wreck fans to newer divers. This is a good sized ship, if you don't want to or don't like to penetrate wrecks you can have a great time looking at all of the life and on the exterior of the ship, it's big enough that you can...
