 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): A three masted Barque built in 1853. Lying upright. Stern section collapsed with wheel house over the side. From mid ships toward bow, wreck condition improves. Bow has windlass and both anchors in place. Many dead eyes on rails. Bowsprit largely intact with chain rigging still there. In good vis ( it varies) an excellent photo op from forward and below the bowsprit but be careful of depth and slight current. Two buoys, one leading midships to a concrete anchor and a line leading to the rail, the other buoy aft, leading to a concrete anchor with a line to a fallen mast that takes you to the wreck. This is a cold water dive even in mid to late summer. Expect temps below 46 F and a thermocline or two.

Arabia shipwreck - The Arabia is a fantastic wreck to dive. Having said that, it should be only experienced advanced divers on this wreck. It is cold (32f last October) it can be dark, and there is a current present at times.
