  • I am not a diver but wanted to see this wreck. And guess what, they have boat cruises with glass floor going through this area. This is the wreck of a ship that same in the 80s and is very interesting...  more »
  • Never dived on a wreck before and was on my bucket list. Was worth paying the extra to be able to go inside the wreck as well. Probably spoils future wreck dives now!  more »
