“Best Wreck Dive in GBI/New Providence”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2008

We arranged a dive to this wreck with Grand Bahama Scuba as the other companies would not dive the wreck outside their weekly schedule or won't take us diving there without a previous dive that when you have logged 100+ dives is not something you want to really do. The wreck itself is a quite deep dive where I would recommend Nitrox 32% as most of it lays at 30 meters and stays pretty flat. You can't see the wreck from the boat so you have to go down a line which is not a problem. Once down there are two penetrations, and one is actually quite good though not very long. Having done few other wrecks in New Providence this one looked much better as the boat has actually been there many years so fish life could develop nicely. In terms of fish life you have usual tropical fish plus a few monster crabs hiding and around the wreck good schools of snappers and some barracudas. I had a small torch in my BCD which was useful in some of the darker areas otherwise you can't actually spot the crabs. An enjoyable dive probably the best wreck in the bahamas.

It has been 20 years since this ship was transformed to an underwater monument by Theo Galanopoulos. Even though I dove this site many times, it is still one of my favorite dives. Excellent visibility, much life and certain mystery which makes this dive one of the best in my log book
