Return to the wrecks and went to find the wall. Wrecks are easy to find, just around the pilings right in front of Galileos. GUE has actually taken responsibility of the wrecks. They are recording info on them, so the wrecks are actually marked by buoys on the surface. The wall was a bit tricky and luckily just bumped into it near the end of the dive. The ships that used to mark its location is gone. You can find it going perpendicular to the third piling to the right out of four (if you are looking towards them in the water) in the inlet right of the inlet the wrecks are in. Easy access (and parking) at the public marina/art gallery. Just park and the access is to the left. Some interesting things to see, there is a huge (like, the footprint of a house) on the way to the wall if you are coming in from the wrecks side. A lot of large fish hide in the folds. Very interesting because most of it is just desolate sand, flounders, and shrimp. The Cape Swain is in better shape than I have been told. As is the other two ships. Here's the RAW footage. Not terribly interesting on film but the dives were great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kzm6PDqWhjM&feature=youtu.be
