Comments Great wreck dive! Nice reefs. Mild current.

The Stavronikita wreck is a 365 foot Greek freighter. The Stav. was gutted for divers then sunk in 1979 and has a good growth. The Stav landed "bolt" upright with the stern in 130 feet and the bow in 60 feet. You can go into and thru different levels of the wheel house. There are many different fish and turtles.

The reefs are healthy with many different fish. I saw big trumpet fish, drum fish, spotted moray eels and sting rays.

High Tide Water Sports boat is well maintained and the crew is very helpful. Juice between dives.

No fresh water water for cameras.
