Antilla (Ghost Ship):
Just north of Palm Beach, this famous wreck rests 18 metres/60 feet below calm water with good visibility. Sometimes crowded with divers, the site is also crowded with yellowtails, angelfish, grunts, eels, corals and giant tube sponges.
This fairly shallow wreck (9 metres/30 feet) provides refuge for parrotfish, trumpetfish, squirrelfish, and angelfish, and divers regularly spy spotted eagle rays as well. The ship itself is the middle section of an oil tanker torpedoed by Germans in World War II.
This site is noted for soft corals, marine plant life, barrel sponges and enormous heads of brain coral. A wrecked pilot boat nearby seethes with multicolored reef fish.
Standing almost on end, this wrecked freighter is an excellent place to spot eels, creole wrasse, sergeant majors and angelfish, along with brain corals, sea fans, fire coral, and colorful sponges.
Malmok Reef and Debbie II :
The reef here sweeps downward to a depth of 27 metres/90 feet, featuring multicolored giant barrel sponges, stingrays, brain corals, and oversized lobsters. A sunken barge (Debbie II) swarms with eels and schooling pelagic fish including barracudas.
In this wonderland of grand coral formations, dwell a whole host of green moray eels.
A little bit of everything can be found at this site, particularly when it comes to varieties of corals. Fortresses of star coral, brain coral, pillar coral, sheet coral, finger-leaf coral, and flower coral sculpt the landscape, while turtles, manta rays, and schooling snappers provide the counterpoint of movement and color.
This site resembles the explosion of a crayon box, brilliant color everywhere. Sponges in purples and oranges, sea fans, and a proliferation of different corals make this spot a favorite for macro photographers.
Mangel Halto Reef:
The range of depths on this reef (from a shallow 5 metres/15 feet to a bottom at 33 metres/110 feet) makes for a wide variety of marine life for a diver to encounter. At the recreational diver's limit, you might find octopus, green moray eels, and deepwater sea fans and anemones. Flitting in the middle depths you'll see blue tangs, butterflyfish, stingrays, and barracudaand look for the occasional encounter with nurse shark, turtle, and even seahorse.
Rum Runner Wreck:
A wooden fishing vessel sunk as an artificial reef, the Rum Runner now houses lobsters, reef fish, and turtles, with soft anemones and hard corals studding the hull.
