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.

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.

Great dive at a great location. The ship is rather shallow so it is accessible to recreational divers. The ship is in 3 pieces. A gentle easy dive!

Very accessible with bow at 90 Feet and stern at 50 feet deep. Coral covers the guns and rails. Fish swarming

Not being a fan of wreck diving, I found this wreck to be very interesting and would dive the site in the future. While there isn't much coral growth there was sufficient marine life to keep a diver happy. The friendly groupers followed us thru...More
