We had pretty good viz and little current. The ship is still is good condition. I went with a guide since I had not been on this wreck before. The only down side is that it is deep so you lose bottom time.

did the dive two years ago. It was good but dangerous. Be experienced. Two days before I arrived a diver disappeared.
