The Wreck of the Cali

Less than 70 yards from shore in 30 feet of crystal clear water lies the Wreck of the Cali, a superb shore dive and snorkel site located righ off the main road in George Town.

The Cali was a four-mast schooner, some 220 feet long, which sunk just North of George Town Harbor in 1944 after experiencing severe weather conditions. Declared a hazard to navigation, she was blown up shortly after her sinking. The ship’s ribs are now exposed and scattered along the ocean floor along with winches, boilers, hull plates all nicely encrusted with sponges and corals. The wreck is also home to a diversity of other marine life including many species of tropical fish and a resident population of silver Tarpon.

I went scuba diving here on 10/28/2013. Average viz: 36-40ft/11-12m. Water temp: 81-85°F/27-29°C.
Did this dive while on a Disney Cruise. Neat dive site and it was a bigger wreck than expected. Easy access from shore. Also heavily used by snorkelers and "snuba-ers".
