    SBH 10 Fathoms Below

    Tuesday afternoon I paid a return visit to a couple of St. Barth's underwater wrecks with my good friends from Serial Divers. It was a fun day of diving with some currents, which made keeping up with my much younger dive mates a bit of a challenge for this 71 year old. There were quite a nice assortment of reef inhabitants present.

    Angels, grouper, tangs, lobster and a stingray...oh my! The coral looks quite colorful this year. I'm so happy you shared this, Jim; seeing what's below the surface is always fun!

    generally speaking, where are the wrecks located?

    The wrecks I've visited lie outside the harbor but not within the boundary of the marine park. Therefore, there is usually some underwater swimming required to reach them so as to avoid marine traffic above.

    Jim, I ran across these two photos tonight. They're undated, but probably from November of '95 or April of '96. They show the wrecked freighter (Matignon?) on the rocks at Les Gros Islets, prior to its eventual sinking. This ship may have been one of the wrecks which you dove.

    Thanks, Kevin. Actually this time I dove the "Non-Stop" and a sailboat wreck. I have dived the Marignon before. Here is a link to photos I took on that wreck in 2013:

    Right, Marignon. Old memories can be imprecise. I have no photos of the Non-Stop. When she went down, she went down quickly, never to see the surface again.
