#4 of 8 in Historic Sites in Bridgetown
Head down into the deep blue ocean to discover Stavronikita, a 110 m (360 ft) freighter resting 40 m (130 ft) beneath the water. The sunken ship is home to exotic marine life, including vibrantly colored fish, octopuses, turtles, eels, and a healthy coral system. Don’t forget to take your waterproof camera, as the high visibility creates great picture opportunities. This dive is best suited for advanced divers who are wreck certified.
