Head out on a dive boat for a two-tank dive trip for experienced divers.

The boat ride to the first dive site takes approximately 45 minutes. The party will be split up into smaller groups and guided by a dive master or dive instructor.

Enjoy a wreck dive at the Antilla -- known locally as ‘the ghost ship’. The Antilla is a German freighter that was scuttled by the Germans in 1945 and is the second-largest wreck in the Caribbean at 400 feet long. Covered by giant tube sponges and coral formations, the wreck is surrounded by lobsters and many kinds of tropical fish. The Antilla dive has a maximum depth of 60 feet for approximately 40 minutes of bottom time.

After a 20-minute surface interval, the second dive will take place on a shallower wreck -- the Pedernalis. The Pedernalis is an oil tanker that was torpedoed by a German submarine during World War II. The wreck’s several large pieces are spread out between coral formations; making visible the cabins complete with sinks and other fittings, as well as the tanker’s pipeline system. The area around the Pedernalis wreck is known for its many types of groupers and its bounty of angelfish. This dive has a maximum depth of 25 feet for approximately 40 minutes.
