a video by Marty O'Farrell.....

Sunk In 1946, found again in 1999. The Myron L is a 120 foot cargo freighter sitting upright fully intact in 145 feet of water. This is a short 10 minute documentary to introduce the world to the first real shipwreck dive in Belize. Watch and then come dive it in person. It is an absolutely beautiful wreck.

Is this the wreck off Belize City that I have heard about (but never dived) over the years?

When you say "in" the channel, do you mean outside the reef in line with the channel, or is the channel exceptionally deep?

Peter
We put an X on the bottom of the boat to mark the site when we find a good dive location. As long a we use the same boat the sites aren't hard to find.
lets go Fri.

Peter look at the video again, remember Marty is a superior videographer and this is a very low vis. dive. Two tanks 32 Nitrox, No penetration and no artifact collection. Hea but you know that your a pro.

I have to tell everyone that this wreck isn't easy to find. Not from our experiences today. But I always love a 140ft mud dive - reminds me of England!
