USS New York

The USS New York is one of the most famous wreck dives in Asia. It was built in 1891 as the second in a line of armored cruisers, with the original designation of "ACR-2" (Armored Cruiser No.2). The USS New York was upgraded (including the turreted 8 inch guns) and became the flagship of the US Asiatic Fleet and Pacific Squadron.

Resting on her port side at a depth of 27 meters, she is still mostly intact, except for explosive damage caused by salvage operations in her mid-section. Fortunately for divers, her 4 massive turreted deck guns and enormous propeller are still intact.

The wreck is 110 meters long, making it one of the lagerst wrecks in the Bay. Diving the USS New York is an awesome experience for divers and the scale of the wreck can really be appreciated as you swim alongside her main guns or around her propeller.
