Latitude: 25° 0.438’ N
Longitude: 77° 33.013’ W

The dive is out of the Stuart Cove dive center... There are marker buoy’s for the Cessna site at around max depth of 18m/60ft. So it’s good for Open Water or Resort Divers... from the twin engine plan head straight out to sea and the wall starts about 30m/100ft from the Cessna in a strait line (Not Depth) the top of the wall is around 20m/66ft. and there are lots of gray reef sharks and tons of big fish to see... Also stunning sponges sticking out from the reef wall..

Beware the currents and at certain times of the day / season they can be downdrafts and upwelling currents can make buoyancy fun and also very dangerous... If you are planning to go over the wall make sure you are experienced, as low on air and decompression can quickly occur if you get caught in a current... Take a local dive guide with you to avoid problems.

This is a brilliant dive, and generally the sharks do not bite, but DO NOT Attempt to touch them or chase them... Remember that every shark encounter is a privilege and should not be abused, they are wild animals and they will defend themselves and their territory.

This airplane was a small Cessna 310 that was originally used as a prop in the Jaws 3 movie (another source says Jaws 4). According to Ray Post, a local dive operator, the aircraft was purposely crashed into the sea by a stunt pilot then raised and re-sunk in her present location. She is now sitting close to Clifton Wall in 50 feet of water. The wall is more interesting than the plane!
