Great scuba and snorkel wreck!

We have been to this site several times to either snorkel or scuba! We love this wreck and we see something new every time!

Myself and my two teenage children took a snorkeling trip to see the ship wreck and it was outstanding! The visibility was great you could really see everything in detail, very cool!

One of my favorite sites to dive. It's starting to really see some growth in coral since it was torn apart in a storm a few years ago. Visibility is usually good to better than average. We had strong current one day and even then the viz wasn't too bad.

The location is right off-shore and near the surface so there were a lot of snorkelers there as well. It made for a crowed trip. Visibility was not good 20-30 ft or so and the wreck is not stable so you cant really get close or go inside for safety sake. Also the tour does not take as long as... More

The waters are a bit rough and the wreck is pretty far down for snorkelers, but its very cool. If you are a scuba diver, you'll want to see it!

It was super choppy because of the constant winds and there are a lot of tour ships there at the same time but once your head is down you don't even notice. The wreck is cool and creepy at the same time. I don't know if I am brave enough to learn to scuba but maybe some day. Highly recommend... More

We first snorkeled above the wreck. It is broken apart, so there are two different areas to explore. We saw numerous fish and even a sea turtle. However, you have to have boat transportation to go out there for snorkeling. It isn't very far off the coast, but too far for swimming. Two people in my family dove off the... More

We went here on a snorkel boat trip. It was wavy that day and a lot of inexperienced snorkelers. Daughter and I loved it. We went forward on one side into the current and drifted back down. Unfortunately we had to leave then. This is a big wreck and can be seen from the surface. It can get wavy just... More

Been to the Antilla twice on two snorkeling trips. One with a cruise and the other when we brought some other people down to Aruba. The size and clarity of the ship is very astonishing when you see it for the first time. It is about 60 feet down and you are farther out off the coast than most snorkel... More

I thought the wreck was pretty cool and interesting to swim through. I didn't care very much for the dive operator I went with on this trip and wish I would have been able to go with Happy Divers but didn't get the reservation in time after I got my certification. The company I had to go with didn't seem... More
