Antilla Shipwreck, Palm - Eagle Beach
(4.4/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Antilla Shipwreck and other Palm - Eagle Beach attractions using our handy Palm - Eagle Beach itinerary maker.

  • Did a snorkeling that was part of a boat ride and the other day I made a tour of submarine (Atlantis Submarine). It's amazing to see the wreck up so much as around inside the submarine. There is the possibility of snorkeling too.

  • My wife and I snorkeled over the Antilla, and it was a lot of fun. The next day I was fortunate enough to scuba the wreck. It is collapsed down upon itself but was a fascinating dive. 
  • Went snorkeling over this wreck. It was so cool to see and it is still in good shape. The schools of fish in this area were amazing as well.

  • This is where an German freighter sunk during World War 2. It is now an amazing snorkeling spot. Believe they also do dives as well. Definitely, need to check it out if you ever make it to Aruba.
  • Went on a snorkel and a dive here. The snorkel trip is worth it if you don't have a scuba license. Very nice dive. Spent a full tank going around the ship. Biggest wreck I've been to by far.
  • Impressive in its scale, but difficult to appreciate while snorkeling. Probably best viewed via scuba.
  • A pretty stellar dive site. The waters are clear and the wreck is fairly expansive!
  • We snorkeled here with the De Palms tours and had a great time. You can free dive while snorkeling and easily touch the ship which was really cool!
