Carlos Barge


Local Name:

Carlos Barge

Depth:

Depth is 60 to 80 feet.

Anchoring:

There's no real trick to anchoring in this area. Just find a suitable place nearby and set your anchors as you would anywhere else. Personally, I'd just anchor nearby and check with the GPS to see roughly where the barge is before rolling in. It shouldn't be too hard to find. It is right on the slope.

Notes:

I suppose one could argue if this is a "shipwreck". It appears to be some sort of floating barge/platform that sunk. In any case, this documents it.

Photos:

This is another wreck that isn't terribly interesting. Here's Henry Thomas. He's probably wondering how he let me talk him into diving this!
