During the Second World War, German submarines were supplied by ships in the outskirts of Providence; one of these was sunk at the entrance and today constitutes one of the most attractive diving sites. The Planchon, as its know, lies at a depth of less than 50 ft on a coral covered terrace, from where the hull stands out, inverted and virtually intact but now covered by a rich coral community. The hull’s side forms an artificial edge of great beauty and is easy to explore. Some openings allow the observation of the ship’s interior, but exploration of its interior is prohibited for safety reasons.
