Diving the Antares
Antares was sunk to create an artificial reef in September 1995. A few weeks later Hurricane Opal stopped by in October of 1995 and damaged the newly sunk reef. After Hurricane Opal got done with the Antares she left the stern and scattered the rest of the hull across a large area. This created a very unique dive. One type of diver that just likes seeing large section of a ship and one that likes to see what a hurricane can do to a ship.
