As far as I know there is only Amigo's Wreck. An old barge that was sunk by Amigo's del Mar, just for a dive of interest. It has been skewed around by Hurricane Mitch and now rests wedged up against a reef formation at around 70'. This is a great site for seeing nurse sharks and a large moray eel due to the feeding. However, it's not that interesting a wreck, if you are into that sort of thing. I believe you can learn more about this wreck on this website by checking out some of the dive ops descriptions.

If there are other divable wrecks in the area, no one has ever told me about them. Gaz are you here?


A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

There are a couple of old "wreck sites" on the reef, but any structure has long since disappeared. The hurricanes have done their work. Some cannons and anchors are visable, but not much else. Most visable artifacts have been salvaged. Any wreck that foundered outside the reef is in deep water.

There are a couple of secret sites but you probably won't be able to find a guide to take you there. It's a bit off the beaten path.
