Ship wreck (sunk in 1998) with a tunnel to dive below, inhabited by a friendly green moray and lots of big groupers!

You have to go to see by yourself. For wreck lovers and begginers is a nice spot to dive. Reach sea life.

Neat wreck, wonderful sealife: the garden eels are wonderful to see and a green Moray Eel will often swim with you!! It is a very popular site, so it can get kind of crowded with other divers. Well worth the trip.

It's a great wreck, well preserved. There were several other divers of course, unfortunately some of them weren't very polite or thoughtful divers.

I have not dove here for 5 yrs and it is still as beautiful now as it was then. The groupers come even closer to you now and the love to hang with the divers
