Pedernalis (Wreck)

This is a fun, shallow wreck that is mostly intact. Due to its shallow depth it is a VERY popular stop for all of the snorkel cruises so be prepared to descend among throngs of tourists. Still, a very fun dive worth the effort.

Living in and around the wreck are nurse and reef sharks, possible eagle rays, turtles, and lots of fish: snapper, angelfish, grunts, anemones, and grouper.
