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.

  • It was interesting to see the shipwreck but there was very few fish. After 10 minutes there was nothing much else to see. Perhaps scuba or snuba would allow you to see more.  more »
