Park that encompasses the wreck of the HMS Rhone, a mail ship that sunk during a hurricane in 1867, and Dead Chest Island, both great dive sites.

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.

Because this sunken ship has a portion of it in not too deep water, you can get a good view of it while snorkeling. You can see a lot of the ship, and it was fun watching the scuba divers getting closer to the ship.

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