In 15-20 feet of water lies the wreck of a 330ft. four-masted steel sailing vessel. The nickname “Sugar Wreck” refers to the cargo of molasses she was carrying from Central America via Havana destined for the northeast US. The ship was run aground by a hurricane in the shallow water. about 100 years ago. The ship broke apart and opened up over time, becoming home to an amazing amount of life. Huge resident loggerhead turtles are a highlight, and are the stars of the show on night dives. Sugar Wreck is also home to nurse sharks, octopus, moray eels, black grouper, hundreds of barracuda and literally thousands of fish of every description. Not to be missed!

This is an incredible night dive. Between the turtles, nurse sharks, conch, crabs, zillions of fish, plus creatures you have only seen in your imagination you will nearly be out of breath with excitement and awe as you climb back aboard and tell the crew what an incredible dive you just had.
