A must see dive

Hold your breath as you free dive 30' and touch the bow of WWII freighter Antillas or scuba 60' to the bottom. Magnificent adventure!

We went on a organized snorkeling adventure to the Antilla Shipwreck with "Pelican Adventures". It was a good trip out there and the crew was very fun to be around.

Great wreck, big and in good shape with reefs. Shallow enough for snorkeling as well. Check out the interesting history before you see this big ship. The WW2 past makes it even better. Also very close to shore so makes for a perfect half day adventure and one you will remember as a highlight of your Aruba trip. Biba Dushi!

We took a tour with Delphi on The Dolphin and snorkeled the wreck. It was a cloudy and windy day - visibility wasn't the greatest. But it was an amazing site to see! Our guides shared the story of the wreck with us.

Best place to dive in Aruba. Beautiful sights, plenty of fish, fun to see snorklers up on the surface when you are down under.

Ship is in 40 feet of water, but easy to see from the surface. Very interesting, would make a great scuba dive.
