Hamel Side

Local Name:

Hamel Side


About 60-70 feet.


We anchor on what I refer to as GBR Coral Head (I'll add that location very soon). Take a bearing to the wreck with your GPS and just swim out to it. I suppose you could anchor right on it, but it would be a little deep.

This wreck was discovered by Bob Hamel. We were on our way back to the coral head when Bob saw this. I just sent up the float to mark it and did not have time to explore too much. This was Bob's first time out with us on a wreck hunt. Perhaps it was beginner's luck!
