I went scuba diving here on 7/20/2013. Average viz: Under 5ft/2m. Water temp: 76-80°F/24-27°C.

Easily accessible from shore. This is a good spot to snorkel if you want to check out a cool shipwreck. Most of the ship along with prop blade and boiler are currently exposed. Parts of the shipwreck are only a couple feet from the surface to a maximum depth of about 8ft. The boiler has been marked by a buoy making it easy to locate when you get to the beach.

The stairs from the Park are wood but seem like Bonaires "1000 steps" dive site. Much eaiser in snorkel gear tho. The ships boiler is about 20 feet south of the wreck. I am told the anchor is to the north a bit but haven’t found that yet.
