Excellent wreck. We had a guide from Rainbow Reef which helped. The wreck is deep but if currents are running, there is plenty of superstructure to hide around.

This is a huge ship with lots of life and places to explore. This would be the most fun for certified wreck divers but has plenty of spaces for other divers to check out. Most, if not all, dive shops require advanced certification and recent...More

The deck is about 85' and the sea floor 135'. If you're looking to dive with an outfit I would highly recommend Rainbow Reef and they will include a guide for free. They are who my family uses annually.
