The San Jose was under wartime blackout when colliding with the Santa Elisa. The collision sent the San Jose quickly to the bottom with the Santa Elisa remaining on fire but still afloat. Due to the ongoing war, no attempt was made to salvage the San Jose despite the relatively shallow depth of the wreck. The wreck was wire dragged in 1950, reducing the height of any existing wreckage to less than 20’

Today the San Jose is an exciting wreck to explore. Lying in 110’ of water 12.5 miles off Atlantic City, the wreck is visited by both fisherman and divers. The stern is the most recognizable section, upright, with a huge steering quadrant visible. The midships lie partially on their starboard side, with two large masts stretching out into the sand. Known as a good lobster wreck, it also provides mussels and fish
