Saw Antilla on a snorkel cruise reserved at one of the many water sports vendors along Palm Beach. Snorkel and fins were provided. Sadly, we only had 30min, I could have used more time because the ship is large and it's such a wonder to look at. The water was rather choppy and currents strong, so this might be a little scary for less confident swimmers. The ship is BIG and in two pieces, so if you don't venture further out from the boat, you might not even see the second piece. I regret not knowing this beforehand. Bring an underwater phone case! Another regret of mine. The fish were amazing. Overall, it was well worth a visit for 60USD!

Didn’t get a chance to see the shipwreck because the waves were too strong and I couldn’t swim. We ended up leaving early. Highly recommend

Very accessible wreck with tons of sea life. Kids and wife loved the scuba and we all snorkeled twice.

We were for ourselves as we went there around lunch time, when everyone else leaves. Did some snorkeling there and it was such a great view. You do not need to be a diver for this. But take an underwater camera - its worth it!

Loved this! This was the first shipwreck that I've snorkeled at. If you've never seen a shipwreck before, it's quite a sight! The snorkeling was cool, but there are also scuba tours as well as a submarine tour that visits this site. It's only a couple hundred yards off the cost and a top spot for most tours in the area.

I wasn't that impressed. A rather big boat but while it is already 70 years under water there is not that much reef on it. Nice to do a wreck , of course , but nothing special behalve the length.

I went to the Antilla while on a day diving excursion with Palm Beach Divers. Our first stop was the Antilla and it was a great dive. The wreck had an abundance of fish, coral growth and the visibility was great.

We saw the Antilla during a submarine tour. It was fascinating to see and hear the history behind it. There are also some really cool-looking fish and turtles living near it/in it.
