  • The wreck itself was a bit smaller than the ships I'm used to, but the warm water (86 degrees!!!!), excellent visibility, and abundant coral life ensured it was still a great dive.  more »
  • Check it out, a Russian Frigate with cannons and coral. Great dive and good vis. Some interesting sea life as well. Got to see turtles, barracuda and tiny blenys.  more »
  • Great dive at a great location. The ship is rather shallow so it is accessible to recreational divers. The ship is in 3 pieces. A gentle easy dive!  more »
