Skill Level:    All Levels

Description:    Wreck



Landing Craft Utility (LCU)

The port side of the LCU is about 10 meters deep and offers a nice dive for all divers. The wreck has large open areas. Diving is very relaxed with good fish life. The small rooms on the deck area are a great introduction to wreck diving, easy to navigate and possible even without specialized equipment or training. This is a great dive for the underwater photographer and used by some dive centers for wreck speciality training.

The wreck is now home to a collection of different lionfish species, along with schools of jackfish and various reef fish. There are two gun platforms at the mid-section and several rooms that offer short penetrations towards the rear. The vessel is intact and it is easy to gain a comprehensive appreciation of her features in a single dive.

Visibility varies from 10 - 25 meters depending on season, tides and currents. This site is a great dive for the underwater photographer but also used for recreational and wreck penetration diving. The dive site is suitable for both beginners and more advance divers.
