Andros Island Bahamas Wreck Diving!

It’s hard to think of a wreck or the sinking of a sea vessel as a good thing, but the wreck of The Marion was a very good thing! Just ask Cathy Dore of London, England, who took these photos earlier this week.

Intentionally sunk as an artificial reef, The Marion was a construction barge being used by the US Navy at the nearby AUTEC base. This unique dive site features not only the hull of the barge, but also a tractor and crane boom that were part of the original vessel. Settled in 60-70 feet of water The Marion is a prime attraction for not only divers, but a wide variety of sea life.

All’s well that end’s well. Even ship wrecks!
