St. Croix Shipwreck Diving
There are five wrecks within about 100 yards of each other located at Butler Bay on
St. Croix’s west shore.
- 177′ freighter
- 144′ trawler
- 2 tugboats
- Oil barge
In addition you can also see part of a hydrolab that was used by NOAA for submersion diving research.
Typically we dive the wrecks as two different dives.
- Three Shallow wrecks including the trawler, oil barge, and a tug boat that was used as a prop in the movie “Dreams of Gold – The Mel Fisher Story”
- Two deep wrecks. The freighter (it’s deepest point is 112′) and the newest wreck, a tug boat.
There’s some light penetration that can be done on some of the wrecks.
