Ship Wreck - Caribsea

The Caribsea ship was WWII freighter owned by the Panama Railroad Steamship Line that transported materials along the Eastern Coast. She was traveling from Cuba to Norfolk, VA with a load of manganese. The ship had no arms at the time of its attack, leaving her defenseless. It was torpedoed on March 11, 1942 and lies in 90 feet of water and is populated by sand tiger sharks. With large groups of spadefish, baitfish, amberjacks, this site is popular for its frequent visits of stingray, cobia and Spanish Mackerel in the summer. This site is visited on our Full Day Dive Trip.
