M.V. Talata is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Saint Kitts And Nevis. The maximum depth is 51-60ft/16-18m.

This is a terrific old freighter that found its demise due to a nasty hurricane in 1983. This freighter was just passing through but ended up taking on water as she waited outside Basseterre Harbor. The watch keeper was rescued but the ship was not. Talata is now broken up in 55’ of water and holds some great appeal. Even a volcanic vent to warm your hands! The Talata rests on a reef, is totally upright and faces east across the harbor. Schools of squirrelfish and yellowtail snapper patrol from bow to stern. Oversized lobsters and a resident green moray will delight the photographer, as will the puffer fish and barracuda. If you are a wrecker, put this on the list.
