Seen this ship on my way from Arrecife to Costa Tequise on my bike. I thought it was really original and authentic and quite a sight to behold especially without prior warning.

As mentioned, its not really an attraction as such. For land lubbers it makes for good photos at sunset, or to catch some bird life fishing for their supper. For divers im sure this is an excellent location.
