Antilla Shipwreck, Palm - Eagle Beach

4.4
#3 of 12 in Historic Sites in Aruba
Explore Antilla Shipwreck, one of the largest shipwrecks in the Caribbean. The German cargo ship, SS Antilla, was deliberately sunk in Aruba in 1940, when Germany invaded Holland. The 121 m (400 ft) long wreck is still mostly intact and can be explored on a fascinating dive. With a snorkel, you can get an interesting view by hovering above the wreck, while scuba divers can observe the stern of the boat at 18 m (60 ft) below the water's surface. Observe the massive boat underwater, as hundreds of tropical fish dart between the colorful coral formations, sponges, and anemones that cover the wreck.

  • If you are interested in snorkeling in this location, check out the trip offered by Arusan. The catamaran is well maintained and the crew is fantastic!  more »
  • Around the wreck is the ideal for scuba diving or snorkeling. Even by snorkeling alone you can see enough! Location is easy to reach from the hotels with a catamaran or so. Several tours depart.

  • Awesome dive. A must see. One of the best ship wreck dives in the world.
  • It’s easily worth the money. The wreck is large, and you get a great view just snorkeling.
