“Huge Wreck, but Poor Visability and Strong Currents”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Unfortunately for us, the visibility when we visited was only about 45 feet. The dive had pretty strong currents as well. We have heard from other divers that they have been there with 80-90 feet of visibility.

“Challenging Wreck Dive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

This dive is not for the weak of heart or the inexperienced diver.
However if you are adventuresome, this is the dive for you. Most of the divers were guys, and several were techies. The current was strong, but there was a guide line down to the wreck, and once you were at depth it was spectacular!
