This wreck is spread out over a large area. Not safe for swimming into the wreck, there is nice reef near the wreck to check out. One of two wreck dives that we visited during our week at Anthony's Key Resort.

This is one of those wreck dives you have to do when in Roatan. Large ship, lots of interesting marine life. Saw Garden eels, 5 foot Grouper, shrimp, and more.

Easily my favorite wreck off Roatan. 100+ ft sitting on a sandy bottom in the middle of a field of garden eels sits El Aquila. There is one black grouper that always hangs out with me on this dive.
