Cool spot with lots of neat fish and sea life. Sort of a spooky experience. Glad that the Nazi's took the L on this one.

The story about this wreck is fascinating, and the conditions for snorkeling are perfect! This was my first snorkeling experience and it was amazing, definitely going to do this again!

We dove the Antilla wreck with Aqua Windies dive shop. The day was incredible, light current, great visibility. There is a lot too see and I could easily have dove the wreck again for my second dive that day. Keep your head up and look around - there are lots of bigger fish (barracuda) and turtles that are swimming around... More

I have dove on this wreck several times. It is an easy wreck for beginners and interesting enough for advanced divers. Visability is usually excellent and there is a good variety of ocean life.

This cargo ship, scuttled in the water during WW II, is now an amazing reef that has attracted man colorful fish and lots of different kinds. Sadly, the 400-foot ship has shifted and broken further apart over the years due to storms and rough waters. But it is still a great snorkel and dive site. You will have to take... More
