MIZPAH & PC1170 - Two of the best wrecks in Florida are lying in 90 feet of water and just twenty minutes from the dock. The Mizpah is a 185 foot Greek luxury liner with 3 levels of penetration and 3 feet of soft corals covering the ship from bow to stern. Even on a clear day of 100 foot visibility, the visibility on this dive is limited to 3 feet because of the abundance of tropical fish. The bow of the Mizpah is actually running into the Patrol Craft PC1170, which is split into two section. The PC170 is 160 feet in length.
PALM BEACH TRIANGLE - this site actually consists of 3 wrecks - the Eidsvaag freighter, the Phillips Barge, and the Rolls Royce. All 3 sunken relics can be seen on a single dive. On this dive youíll see a lot of barracudas, rock fish, groupers, and large green morays. One moray in particular, Mr. Green, is extremely friendly and often comes out to greet divers.
PRINCESS ANNE - The newest and most awesome wreck in the area. The Princess is a 340 foot car ferry that sits upright in 100í of water facing bow north. The top deck is at 42 feet and several of the decks are open and penetrable. If the currents are right, this one should not be missed.
AMARYLLIS - The Amaryllis is about 400 feet long. Only itís hull and bottom deck remain; the other decks were removed in order to pull the ship off the beach where it was found after a tempestuous hurricane. The depth is 80 feet with the hull sides rising up to 60 feet.
70 FT. BARGE - This barge, although not intact, is a favorite of many divers because of the turtles and large Midnight Blue Parrotfish that frequent the wreck. It lies in 80 feet of water just outside of the inlet.
FRANKíS BARGE - Probably the oldest barge in these waters. This wreck has an enormous school of small snapper that live around the wreck year round.
