The story of the antilla is interesting piece of history but water is rougher off shore and the fish are better in the shallower water. Perhaps better dive site than snorkel site.

It was a real nice nice. 30 feet viz. It is a large wreck to dive on, lot of sea life on it. The bow and stern are in good shape but the boiler must have exploded when it sank as the center part of the ship is ripped open. I was told it was the best wreck to dive... More

We chose the glass boat tour and it was worth every dollar. Very affordable and you are able to see everything. I highly recommend this tour!

We snorkeled the Antilla as part of a snorkeling trip and it ended up being the best part of the trip. The water is a beautiful blue and totally clear so visibility wasn't an issue despite part of the wreck being many feet below. It was quite wavy when we were there so it might be challenging for someone who... More

Keep in mind that this sunken ship is 40 to 60 feet deep. You can see it from above if you are snorkeling, but it's better seen if you can scuba down there. Nice time.

We went on a 1/2 day snorkel trip with Red Sail and the Antilla was one of the stops. It's breathtaking and there also plenty of fish to see. A real once in a lifetime opportunity to see a piece of history in a unique way.

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.
