“Fish Soup”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

This dive is renowned so I was very anxious to do it. The wreck is big, easily on a par with some of the large ones in the Red Sea like the Ghiannis D. Although it id very broken up it is still possible to make out the boilers and the wheel house amongst other structural debris, The fish life on this wreck is phenomenal, at times it was like being in a fish soup. The fish and corals are beautiful . I would highly recommend this dive.

“Nice wreck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

I enjoyed this wreck and would recommend it to anyone. It was a bit crazy though with all the boats there with tours and we had a boat go right over our heads while we were surfacing! I mean they went right over the wreck and all! That was very uncalled for and dangerous as they should keep their distance from divers. Also, the wreck wasn't really penetrable anymore which is disappointing.

“Hurry up! The wreck is breaking down slowly but surely...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

By now the Antilla wreck is in the water for over 70 years. It is a very impressive ship, and sea life has really taken over. Fish, coral, sponges, I've seen some large groupers, pufferfish and moray eels here. But the wreck is slowly but surely breaking down. Still, it is one of the impressive diving spots around Aruba!
