This 114-foot steel-hulled freighter is located a little over one mile south-southeast of the Boca Raton Inlet. She was the first freighter to be sunk in this area. In her early years, after her sinking in 1988, this ship was very popular, especially for night-diving. The Noula Express was penetrable and easily explored. She was often decorated for different holidays to the delight of many divers.
Unfortunately, the hurricane force winds of Hurricane Andrew in 1992 tore Noula Express into two sections and smashed and twisted much of the ship. A drug-carrying submarine was welded shut and sunk southeast of the wheelhouse section of the Noula Express.
The Noula Express wreckage lies among white sand and a small patch reef system. The bottom is at 78 feet with the profile reaching up to about 55 feet. Good algae growth supports a rich fish community, with divers reporting seeing bait fish, sport fish, and occasionally barracuda.
