 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): This is the largest WW II ship wreck in the Caribbean at ~400 ft. The ship was scuttled by its captain on May 10, 1940.
Wide open sections allow divers to penetrate the wreck with ease. But some parts of the wreck are i
unstable.
Shifts caused by storms causing modest but steady fuel oil leak as of late Feb. 2009. Seemed like more of a cosmetic hazard for those who were fouled, but light-colored dive shirts/swim suits had to be thrown out.
