Nice shallow wreck dive

Enjoyed this shallow wreck dive with Palm Beach Divers. Allows for long bottom time - great for divers who have not been diving recently. Saw turtles, sea urchins, lobster, eel... read more

This was dive two while on a cruise. If you are an experienced wreck diver or just an avid recreational diver (50 or more dives) this wreck will truly disappoint you. The wreck is scattered in piles along the sandy bottom and there really isn't much of it to see or identify it as an actual wreck. For the occasional... More

Lots to see. Great bottom time for newbies looking to explore. Saw quite a few species of fish and aquatic life. Shallow dive (25ft?) that has great visibility

I've done this 3 times of the course of 6 or so years. Each time I do it, it seems as if I see more and more of the wreck. The marine life is plentiful. I did this dive with red sail sports and each time I'd say they were excellent.

Awesome dive at night with Red Sails Sports. We have been diving on the wreck both day and night. Lots more marine life on the night dive than during the day. Turtles, many lobsters, puffer fish, crabs, large green Moray eels, and even a squid. A night dive on this wreck should definitely be on your to do list

We have gone to Aruba annually for the past 27 years. The island is the safest, friendliest Paradise to visit. The people are the most honest and highly educated in all the Caribbean.

One of many wreck dives we did with Mermaid Dive Center. This is an easy shallow dive. Not as interesting as some of the other wrecks but okay for a second dive after one of the deep dives.

I dove twice on this wreck site. It's a very easy and shallow dive, excellent for beginners, but still very nice for more experienced divers.

We dove this on our discover Scuba trip and then again as one of our final checkout dives to get certified OW. There are better sites to see in my opinion and we haven't been back to this spot since being certified.

We were a little too spoiled as divers to love this dive site. We did enjoy Unique Water Sports that took us out. We had the 30 foot boat to ourselves and got to enjoy a private dive. The dive master Bart really made the dive. He knew where we could find all the little creatures to keep the dive... More
