An OK dive, although vis can be highly variable. Hit this one at high tide for best vis. It's a long slog out to the wreck, although there is a lot of interesting debris along the way. It is a little strange coming up onto this wreck - you cross a desert with nothing but a few crabs and debris, and all of a sudden you're facing this rectangular island of life.
