“Large Wreck”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is an excellent dive to visit a very large ship that is mostly intact. There is a good amount of life on and around the ship and you can even penetrate the rooms which is really cool.

“Wonderful wreck, great visibility”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

This was great, it is about 110 feet, and the visibility is wonderful. Highly reccomend it. After the wreck, there is a great ascent up a wall with tons of life to see.

“Great wreck, don't miss the reef”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

The wreck is great and in very high visibility area (must have been 150 feet on our dive). It is surrounded by large groupers who are friendly (they get fed). The reef just off the wreck is full of life including large green morays often seen free swimming. Outstanding dive. Because of all this, depending on the time of year, you can expect multiple dive boats moored there at any time. You won't be lonely ;-)

“great life aboard this wreck”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Loved the growth on the wreck, the fish life also. What was so fun were the garden eels nearby. That's at 108 feet, but be sure to take a minute to see them.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Diving with another experienced diver we were able to swim through the "back-end" taking in all 3 levels, before looking at the rest of the ship which had been torn apart by the last hurricane, then slowly ascending around the mast.
