Ship Wreck - Cassimir

The Cassimir transported molasses from Baltimore to Cuba to be used in the rum making process. On the morning of February 26, 1942, the Cassimir was moving through a dense fog when it hit another freighter, the Lara, that was also moving through the fog. There was a gash on the starboard side of the Cassimir, causing it to sink. During the summer, the water temperature ranges from the upper 70's to the low 80's. Visibility averages 70 feet but can get up over 100 feet. Large schools of amberjack and spadefish can be seen swimming around the wreck. Seabass and tropical fish, such as Queen Angel can also be seen regularly. This site is visited on our Extended Day Dive Trip.
