Oro Verde (Wreck)

Originally a U.S. Army transport ship, the Oro Verde spent its final decade shuttling bananas between Ecuador and Miami. In 1976, it met its fate on the vibrant reef encircling Grand Cayman, just off Seven Mile Beach.

Within the confines of the wreck, an array of captivating marine life thrives. Nurse and reef sharks roam the vicinity, alongside the possibility of encountering majestic eagle rays, graceful turtles, and an abundance of fish species including snapper, angelfish, grunts, anemones, and grouper.

Embraced by the local community in 1980, the Oro Verde was strategically relocated to shallower waters, ingeniously transformed into an artificial reef and an esteemed dive site. Its allure beckons both novice and seasoned divers alike.

Situated in the stunning Cayman Islands, this site boasts excellent underwater visibility of up to 25 meters. With a maximum depth of 17 meters, it is suited for divers of varying skills, from beginners to advanced enthusiasts.
