We dove this on our discover Scuba trip and then again as one of our final checkout dives to get certified OW. There are better sites to see in my opinion and we haven't been back to this spot since being certified.

Good tune up dive to refresh your skills after a while away from diving. Normally several divers on this dive. We followed a Dive Master over the wreckage. It's not really recognizable as anything other than pieces of a ship. A fair amount of different...More

We dove this wreck with Red Sail Sports. 25 feet down, and the wreck is split into about four/five pieces. Bottom temp was about 70 degrees, and visibility was about ten-fifteen feet, with minor current. We spent about 40 minutes, which was just enough time....More

There are many wrecks to dive in Aruba. This was ok and had some interesting sea life but was limited. There are only 3 pieces remaining of the wreck since the bow and stern were salvaged.

This is a great dive, particularly if you are a beginner. Lots of color, and sea life at a shallow depth. Because of the spread out nature of the barges, there's plenty to see, and each barge presents a whole new area to explore

This is an accessible shallow wreck, between Palm Beach & Malmok Beach, for divers and snorkelers alike. The remains are spread out making for good visibility and inhabited by numerous species, you see groupers, grunts, parrotfish, angelfish, silversides and trumpetfish.

Did my first wreck dive, and it ended up being my first night dive ever as well. We went with Aruba Sports. It was a packed boat, with one guide for about 8-10 divers with diverse skills. We saw about 4-5 turtles, couple of eels...More

The Pedernalis is a nice, shallow wreck dive – especially for beginners. Dive depth is around 25 feet with great visibility. The wreck is spread out and very easy to see. While diving there, I saw lionfish, pufferfish, eels, and lots of schools. I would...More
