West Reef Plane Wreck

Local Name:

West Reef Plane Wreck


Less than 15 feet. On a low tide a prop still sticks out of the water.


This is up on the reef on the lagoon side just north of Carlson. This is best done on a calm day. Nothing special about anchoring here. Just anchor as you would anywhere on top of the reef.

I have only snorkeled this once and that was before the days when I was taking photos. I recall seeing 2 large radial engines, a battery, and a lot of little pieces of debris in the surrounding area. This is another wreck that is not terribly exciting.


No Photos available at this time. Please check back later.
