Details


Wreck dive from boat. Swam around perimiter and debris from “oro Verde”, a WWII cargo vessel subsequently used for illegal drug trade between KY and South America.

Bow and stern hulls partially intact; center section collapsed. Ship not visible on map image. Predates sinking, or shipwreck relocated during massive hurricane Ivan, which occurred just a few weeks after the dive?
