Great snorkeling.

Ship is in 40 feet of water, but easy to see from the surface. Very interesting, would make a great scuba dive.

I dove with JADS and got to explore this wreck from the bottom to top... The wreck is massive and it's sad how much it's deteriorating so we weren't able to penetrate it.. Since a portion of the wreck is visible only 5-10 feet below the surface it's nice for the snorkelers.. Due to the cold fronts, the water was... More

Although we really wanted to dive this wreck, it would up being a spot on one of our snorkeling tours. The water wasn't clear the day we went, but it was still cool to snorkel above the wreck- A little ominous and exciting! The HIGHLIGHT was when a huge puffer fish (the size of a basketball) swam up to us... More

The story of the antilla is interesting piece of history but water is rougher off shore and the fish are better in the shallower water. Perhaps better dive site than snorkel site.

This is a very large wreck that sits around 75 ft or so. It is also 400ft long. Lots of great life is around this wreck and also the miscellaneous boat parts that are all over the place.

It was a real nice nice. 30 feet viz. It is a large wreck to dive on, lot of sea life on it. The bow and stern are in good shape but the boiler must have exploded when it sank as the center part of the ship is ripped open. I was told it was the best wreck to dive... More

We chose the glass boat tour and it was worth every dollar. Very affordable and you are able to see everything. I highly recommend this tour!

We snorkeled the Antilla as part of a snorkeling trip and it ended up being the best part of the trip. The water is a beautiful blue and totally clear so visibility wasn't an issue despite part of the wreck being many feet below. It was quite wavy when we were there so it might be challenging for someone who... More
