We bought a underwater camera and had blast feeding the fish! Also, the drinks on The Arusun were delicious!

I dove here as part of my open water certification and it was awesome! Really cool site, super safe and tons of other divers and snorkelers around!

Came to an Antilla on a snorkeling trip (I am sure it would be much better for divers). The waters around the boat are pretty rough, and the day we were there, there were many snorkel boats there which made it very crowded. This is a huge ship wreck and worth while to come check out!

By far one of the best shipwrecks to dive in the world. lays in 50 ft of water, no strong currents and lots of underwater life

One of the highlights of our visit to Aruba was seeing the Antilla sunken ship on the Seaworld Explorer Tour. The guides were great and very knowledgeable and informative. If you can do steep stares this is a great tour to do.

We had a nice trip on the submarine. Even though I'm a bit claustrophobic I was fine and really enjoyed the trip. Saw a few ship wrecks and plenty of fish but sadly no turtles. Whilst in Oranjested do some shopping, it is interesting to watch the speed boats pull up into the shopping centre like cars!

We dove off of our jolly pirates snorkeling ship to see this ship. It is totally submerged in about 50 feet of water. There are some fish around, but the real site is the WWII ship laying on the sea bottom.

Stopped here as part of a snorkelling tour. The ship is massive. It was a once in a lifetime experience. Lots of coral and fishes to see as well as The Antilla. The water was a little choppy but would definitely recommend.
