  • The recent storm toe off the radar tower and laid the fore section of ship on her port side. The sea turtles are in abundance here.  more »
  • 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 »
