It was sunk over 12 years ago, by Atlantis Submarine Company as an artificial reef. The Caroline is a 165ft Navy Yard Oilier that is now sitting on the bottom of the ocean in120 feet. The Caroline is the island's best ship wreck dive. The average visibility is about 80ft.You will be guided by our friendly staff that are all PADI dive instructors. At this site there are a lot of different types of Hawaiian reef fishes that you'll only see in Hawaii. The abundance of them grows in numbers as we feed these fishes daily. The Caroline is also the home of some green sea turtles. You can see them sleeping in the wheel house or in the ships rooms. These turtles here are very friendly. They will just sit still and let you watch them. Once in a while you can even see Manta Rays that extend about 15ft in length gliding past the ship. There are a lot of moray eels that also live in the Caroline. Some of which are very large in size. These eels are not aggressive, so they are very interesting to watch. You can also see large angler fishes that walk on the ship with their cute little feet. If you feel comfortable enough, your instructor will take you in the rooms of the ship. In these rooms are many types of different organisms that grow wild. This dive plan is set for 20 minutes of bottom time at 90ft.The boat ride is approximately 20 minutes to this dive point.
