This site has 3 wrecks, the Edsvag Freighter (aka the Owens), the Phillips Barge and the Rolls Royce. The marine life here is amazing. There are so many animals to see, including green moray eels, sharks, goliath grouper, turtles and schooling fish. This site is just 10 minutes south of the inlet.
The bulk of the corridor is composed of three wrecks (Mizpah, PC1170, and Amaryllis) that line up to form an amazing 1700 foot drift dive.
