Antilla Shipwreck, Palm - Eagle Beach

4.2
#3 of 13 in Historic Sites in Aruba
Explore Antilla Shipwreck, one of the largest shipwrecks in the Caribbean. The German cargo ship, SS Antilla, was deliberately sunk in Aruba in 1940, when Germany invaded Holland. The 121 m (400 ft) long wreck is still mostly intact and can be explored on a fascinating dive. With a snorkel, you can get an interesting view by hovering above the wreck, while scuba divers can observe the stern of the boat at 18 m (60 ft) below the water's surface. Observe the massive boat underwater, as hundreds of tropical fish dart between the colorful coral formations, sponges, and anemones that cover the wreck.

    We dove the wreck last week while in Aruba. . My son and I were very excited until we noticed 5 other dive boats and a couple of snorkel boats moored at the sight. Very crowed and disappointing.  more »

    I did with my family the excursion in the Sea Explorer (a boat with a hull that is dipped 1.5 meters under water, and has windows to appreciate the underwater life, and in this case, the Antilla wreck. Sale Palm Beach dock with a boat that takes them to the ship/submarine (which cannot reach the coast of the dock, because of its deep hull). Guide Angie and Robert duct were excellent and very friendly, it is highly recommended for the guys, who are fascinated with fish passing around the submarine.

    We really enjoyed snorkeling at this sight. Only gave it four stars as it can be very crowded and the water can be a little rough, but it is well worth the trip! We did it with Jolly Pirate and again ...  more »
