If you want to go on a great wreck dive The Tibbett's is a super example of nicely salvaged ship to poke your nose around. just be careful about going inside.

The wreck itself was a bit smaller than the ships I'm used to, but the warm water (86 degrees!!!!), excellent visibility, and abundant coral life ensured it was still a great dive.

Check it out, a Russian Frigate with cannons and coral. Great dive and good vis. Some interesting sea life as well. Got to see turtles, barracuda and tiny blenys.
