The max depth of the wreck is 21 feet. The visability is not great, but there was lots of sea creatures. I shot u/w video which came out okay. There were 2 other dive boats on it so there were just too many divers around.

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....More
