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

Your heart will beat faster. Experience must be done. My only regret is to not bring a camera to capture this beautiful historic wreck.

So glad that the weather cooperated (relatively smooth waters, clear water and current not too strong) and that we got to see this wreckage. Get the history of the steamer before you dive/snorkel because it will make the wreckage so real.

Enjoyed my three dives on the Rhone. Very glad that this is being protected as a national park. Our dive boat, the Cuan Law, included an excellent summary of the history

This was by far the coolest place we have dived at. So much marine life, great visibility and bright corals. The water is pretty choppy when on surface but this truly is a must do!

This was a very cool stop off...it is right beside Cooper island (which is where we stayed the night). You will need FULL sun to be able to see it good snorkeling and we were in luck. Stunning.

I will say that the history and stories surrounding the Rhone are more interesting than diving the wreck itself. I do have to confess to being bored with most wreck dives since they are usually crusted over pieces of metal but this was touted as...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.
