Divesite:

The freighter now rests silently on the bottom in 280 feet of water. Divers can find an old pickup truck in the forward cargo hold, its hood missing and engine exposed. Additionally, several shipping containers can be found in the forward and aft holds. The wreck is similar to several other coastal freighters utilized by various artificial reef programs off Florida. While invertebrate and gorgonian growth is not as luxurious as that found on shallower wrecks, amberjack, grouper, and snapper are commonly encountered around it.
