I was lucky enough to see this ship go down. I have made several dives since & enjoyed every one. For some reason which i don't know, many of the dive shops are reluctant to dive here.

This wreck is designed with open water divers in mind. The guided penetration dives are easy and the sea life abundant. This is a must do dive if you have the chance.

This is a very fun wreck dive. About 70 feet deep, and once you get to the wreck you are protected from the relatively strong current. Lots of little nooks and crannies to go into. Bring a light. Our divemaster said this is a great...More

Descent onto the wreck is just your usual with clear water and good visibility. Approaching the entry point there was a large sandy area with hundreds of sand eels poking up with their little heads facing into a very mild current. Entry into the wreck...More
