This is a beauty of a wreck and is still standing, although a few meters deeper this year than in the past.
With ample amounts of fish life and coral, the St. George wreck has become a vast artificial reef, home to many large schools of fish, barracuda, large Jacks and large parrot fish to name a few, fun swim throughs and plenty of depth options to have all divers smiling from recreational to technical.
In 1999, the ship was sunk off the coast of Bayahibe less than 1 km from shore and is protected by the Parque Nacional.
If you’re qualified, this wreck has some great penetration points and is the usual place to find advanced divers training, technical divers penetrating and happy certified divers leaving nothing but bubble’s and taking nothing but smiles back to the beach.
