There are actually two ship wrecks to see at this site: The San Pedro (80 feet long) rests only 30 meters from the YO-257 (190 feet long). This is definitely a two-for-one dive. You can expect to see white-tip reef sharks, eagle rays, and even get your picture taken by the occupants of the Atlantis Submarine. That's right, the tourists will be inside the submarine looking out at you. Maximum depth is 107 feet.
