This is still a fantastic dive, even after the hurricane. Really great photography opportunities and a good place if you have divers of varying skill levels (novices on the prop, more advanced divers on the deeper sections).

We had the opportunity to dive the wreck during our time on the Cuan Law, We thoroughly enjoyed both a day and night dive. Lots to see--well worth it!

We found it very easy to view the stern section of the wreck. There was also a cute sea turtle. But we did notice that the current increases as you swim down the length of the wreck, so look out.

With 60-70 ft visibility and the stern approximately 12-15 ft below the surface it's a perfect dive and snorkeling spot. Easy free dive to touch the stern (if you so desire) but can easily make out the prop, prop shaft to reduction gear, port holes...More

Such a beautiful place! The Diving and Snorkeling here are amazing and easy. A great day stop on our recent bareboat charter.

Your heart will beat faster. Experience must be done. My only regret is to not bring a camera to capture this beautiful historic wreck.

So glad that the weather cooperated (relatively smooth waters, clear water and current not too strong) and that we got to see this wreckage. Get the history of the steamer before you dive/snorkel because it will make the wreckage so real.

Enjoyed my three dives on the Rhone. Very glad that this is being protected as a national park. Our dive boat, the Cuan Law, included an excellent summary of the history

This was by far the coolest place we have dived at. So much marine life, great visibility and bright corals. The water is pretty choppy when on surface but this truly is a must do!

Not sure. Typically only scuba operators will be heading out to the Rhone.

Probably not unless you are certified. The wreck is around 60ft deep at the shallowest point.
