"Long Swim is worth it! Intermediate"

Reviewed Jan. 21, 2018

Swam out on the surface (not for beginners) look for the buoys, then dropped down wanted to save air for the dive! Visibility was excellent, my max depth was 73 feet. Lots of coral growing on the ships surface. Saw a pair of Grey Angel. You need to dive this site more than once to see it all. Watch your navigation heading back to shore, there is a flag pole on shore marking the entrance.... Show More

"Wreck Dive"

Reviewed Oct. 27, 2017

This site can be a boat dive or shore dive. I dove from the shore and swam out on the surface to conserve air. It is a lengthy swim but not too bad. This wreck is massive! You could dive it a few times and still not see everything. I saw a couple queen angel fish and a turtle. There was also a grouper that seemed to follow us around ;). My average depth was 45 ft and max depth was 78 ft.... Show More

"Tibbetts"

Reviewed Oct. 20, 2017

The entry point from shore is awesome. Just like a swimming pool with a corridor out to the ocean. We have dove this as a shore dive and a boat dive. You can shore dive this as long as the waves are small, it is a bit of a surface swim, use your snorkel to save air and you will see rays underneath you in the crystal clear water, it is easy to find the wreck. You drop down at the buoy line and you are at the stern of the ship. Swim out along one side and back along the other side. The ship is broken in the middle. If you are adventurous there are multiple swim through opportunities. Queen Angels and turtles are on the ship. Lots of sponges are growing. After you finish the wreck if you have air and are a fairly good navigator you can swim back to the entry point underwater going from coral head to coral head.... Show More

"Highly Recommend! "

Reviewed Jun. 14, 2017

This was my first ship wreck, and I loved it! It's a 330 ft. Russian Frigate. Average depth is around 80 ft. Temperature was around 81.
To save air and enjoy more time exploring the wreck you can swim out to the dive buoy on the surface and then descend. There was a ton to look at, lots of coral grown throughout the ship, and a vast amount of sea life! ... Show More
