This wreck varies in depth from less than 40 ft at the coning tower to over 100 ft near the bottom making it an enjoyable dive for many dive levels. Also, you can penetrate it in several places or not, depending on your skill level. We went out with the Brac Shack but I believe Brac Reef Resort also dives... More

Fairly easy wreck dive. If you are so inclined there are several swim throughs that don't require a wreck cert. Look for the HUGE grouper midship.

Wreck diving is one of my favorite types of diving. This wreck is great for both the beginner and more advanced wreck diver.

...with quite a bit of wildlife - could easily be an advanced dive if divers choose to penetrate. Easy access via mooring lines - little current when we were there - very impressive and fun wreck - portions shallow enough for intermediate level divers - interesting patch reef to one side with a nice swim through.

It was quite cool to move around, and in if we wanted during this dive. Lots of fish, in 30-60 depth of water and we were surprised to see and follow a large turtle. It was a piece of history we enjoyed.

My husband loves wreck diving and I am learning to like it more and more. Boat had some good swim throughs for him. Good fish life. Great photos to be had. It helped to have a great dive operator! Would dive again if we come to the Brac.

Decent bar food, but the pina colada and margarita I tried were very poor quality...and not inexpensive.

Coolest wreck dive. Old Russian destroyer with AA guns and missile launching tubes , now all coral encrusted with lots of aquatic life.
