Caroni River

The Caroni River was a large oil tanker that sank in January 1940 after striking a magnetic mine. Due to her position, she was a hazard to navigation and was flattened by explosives (reference).

Today she lies completely broken and in three sections, on a sandy bottom and in about 25m of water. One of the main features of this dive is the vast quantity of marine life to be found. She is renowned for Conger, is home to all the local wrasse species and is often covered with large shoals of bib.

Depth 22-25m
