Once used to shuttle people and automobiles across the Chesapeake Bay, this 350-foot ferry was sunk in 1993. The vessel sits upright with her stern sitting in 105 feet of water and her bow in 95 feet of water. The hull begins at 100 feet of water and rises up to 72 feet. An excellent multilevel dive profile was created when storms pushed the upper deck west, doubling the width of the site. Although it has only been in the water a short time, the wreck has already established itself as one of the best wreck dives in the United States.
Nestled near a beautiful reef system, those who are not trained in wreck diving have plenty to see outside of the ship. Schools of jacks, barracuda, and the occasional shark swim through the surrounding waters and corals cover the structure of the wreck. Trained wreck divers can explore open rooms, some over 100' in length, intact staircases, and other parts of the ship. Divers often have a seat at the marine head for a photo or a rest break.
