A NEW VIDEO HAS JUST BEEN RELEASED! WATCH IT HERE! Sinking of the Anthony Bell

 

Here’s a look at the two wrecks:

The Anthony Bell

“The Anthony Bell” is an old decommissioned tug boat that used to work at Clifton Pier on the south west corner of New Providence Island in the Bahamas.  The Tug was cleaned from the inside out and then was sunk off the south side of Goulding Cay in mid-August just West of the island of New Providence.  She is approximately 90 feet in length, sitting in 50 feet of water surrounded by coral and is the newest wreck at Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas.  

The Long Island Lady

“The Long Island Lady” is fishing boat that was sitting abandon in the Nassau harbour for years.  After being floated and brought to shore, she was thoroughly cleaned up by volunteers from local schools, The Bahamas defense force, Dolphin Encounters and staff of Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas during April’s Coastal awareness month.  After a few months, she was cleaned up once again and she was then moved out to her sinking on this past June.  The Long Island Lady is about 70 feet long and she is sitting on a rocky bottom at about 40 feet in depth, right next to the tongue of the ocean wall that drops down to 6500 feet.  

Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas offers a variety of wreck diving packages in additional to other diving options. For more details, visit the website at www.StuartCove.com
