Not the best dive if someone is expecting to see a lot of marine life but it is certainly a neat wreck. It has been nicely cut with large openings and a lot of light for easy navigation throughout. Can sometimes have a very strong current making it difficult to stay on the site. Expect to see a few larger groupers and garden eels. Can see where a storm broke the ship in half which is kind of cool!

For my first wreck dive I would have to say it was excellent. Easy entry into the wreck with large openings, clearly marked path to follow with great visiabilty allowing a first timer to feel more at ease. Plenty of sea life has taken to the boat, making for a more adventuresome dive. I would reccomend this dive to all first time wreck divers. Have fun, Be safe! Owen
