MARY CELESTE is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located at Rochelais (Roskell) Reef, Miragoane, Gonâve Island, Haiti. The maximum depth is 21-25ft/6-8m. The average visibility is 36-40ft/11-12m.

No actual wreck, just the reef where some pieces were found :(

The Mary Celeste became one of the greatest maritime mysteries of all time when it was found abandoned 400 miles east of the Azores on December 5, 1872. The ghost ship was at full sail and intact — the only things out of place were a missing life raft, a disassembled pump and 3½ feet of water in the hold. The crew was never heard from again.

The incident became a sensation after Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about it in Cornhill Magazine, and everything from mutiny to sea monsters has been suspected as the reason for the crew’s disappearance. The ship returned to service and sailed for 12 more years before being wrecked in Haiti as part of a failed attempt at insurance fraud.
