Its an interesting spot, for about five minutes. We did find some not too common fish back along the shoreline, heading west

WE enjoyed the boat ride out to the site, and had fabulous visibility while here. Was two great dives, with so much marine life and artifacts from the sinking of the Rhone back in the 1800's. A well preserved spot of history!

This is still a fantastic dive, even after the hurricane. Really great photography opportunities and a good place if you have divers of varying skill levels (novices on the prop, more advanced divers on the deeper sections).

We found it very easy to view the stern section of the wreck. There was also a cute sea turtle. But we did notice that the current increases as you swim down the length of the wreck, so look out.

With 60-70 ft visibility and the stern approximately 12-15 ft below the surface it's a perfect dive and snorkeling spot. Easy free dive to touch the stern (if you so desire) but can easily make out the prop, prop shaft to reduction gear, port holes...More

Not sure. Typically only scuba operators will be heading out to the Rhone.

Probably not unless you are certified. The wreck is around 60ft deep at the shallowest point.
