This WWII Airplane was found as a dive site as recently as 2010. While we have tried to offer it as a regular attraction, the visibility and conditions have made it challenging to provide on a consistent basis.
That, coupled with the fact that it is one relatively small plane in a sand channel, makes for little other to see than the sea life congregating on it. Still, if you are a WWII buff, this is a must do site….but unless you have enough diving buddies to do it with, we may not have enough other divers to do it.
60 foot depth.
Great as a private dive or with a minimum of 6 divers. We often couple this with our Manta Quest as they are in reasonable proximity to do on the same charter.
All dive sites are weather conditions permitting.
Uncovered in 2010, this WWII Airplane has become a popular underwater attraction for scuba divers and snorkelers alike. Since it’s a relatively small plane that’s located in a sand channel, the weather conditions and visibility make this a challenging site to visit. Therefore, we emphasize taking advantage of those days when the water is calm and clear to explore this fascinating wreckage.
The ocean waves and saltwater have long since transformed this empty metal vessel into a hotspot for various sea life. Similar to the St. Anthony Wreck and WWII Tank and Landing Craft, this relic of the past is home to many schools of fish, frogfish, mantis shrimp, scorpion fish, eels, as well as occasional eagle and manta rays. Whether you’re a history aficionado or simply eager to explore, this WWII Airplane experience is bound to leave you fascinated with how junk can be revitalized into something beautiful and hospitable.
