Charted with Roanoke Island Outfitters. Good wreck dive with lots of little areas to checkout. Even during periods of low visibility, I found that running a wreck reel was not necessary. During one dive, tides were beginning to change which caused a good amount of current and surge on the wreck. There are lots of sea life to watch on the wreck to include a large sea turtle and a ray with an impressive wing span. Penetration of the wreck is no longer recommended as many of the compartments are beginning to collapse. Some portions of the bow could provide limited penetration but one would need to use extreme caution as there are many entanglement hazards from rope, fire hose, wires, netting, and fishing gear.
