6. AIRPLANE WRECKS

Posted on Posted in Dive Locations in Aruba

Two airplanes, an S-11 and a DC-3, have been sunk intentionally as an artificial reef. After hurricane Lenny in 1999 the DC-3 was dragged to 80 feet of water. Before completely intact and now in two big pieces where penetration of the wreck is still possible. Other parts of this plane are located at a depth of 45 feet on a reef. The S-11 was sunk in 2004 and except for the nose the plane is completely intact. Penetration of this plane is easy. This is a very nice and interesting dive with a great photo opportunity on big barracudas.
