Sophie Rickmers Wreck (Difficult ++)

This is a planned stage decompression dive and therefore is only open to divers with high certification and experience levels.  The Sophie Rickmers was a WWII German ship scuttled to avoid capture by the Dutch.  The wreck lies upright and intact with a healthy coral and marine life.  Giant grouper and marble rays are often sighted, schools of inquisitive bat fish follow divers on their tour, and deep water varieties of reef fish teem all over the wreck.  Watch where you touch as there are many large scorpion fish.  With visibility often up to 40mts this is a spectacular and memorable dive full of drama and excitement.
