I got to dive this wreck as part of my advanced course and what a treat it was! 107 feet to the sandy patch near the wreck- saw lots of grouper and garden eels! Fireworks on some parts of the mast! The wall nearby is a great place to level up and extend dive time!

We did however have a sea view although... More

Dive starts deep along the flanks of the ship. You continue across the decks, then up a coral encrusted canyon to the extraction point. Short dive, but what do you expect for 100+ feet?

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.
