TYPES OF SHIPWRECKS
By Capt. Dan Berg


Throughout the world, there are shipwrecks of all types and ages. They range from ancient Egyptian vessels and Spanish galleons, which now are often only piles of ballast stone, to luxury liners, oil tankers, airplanes, and barges, even small cabin cruisers. Each is distinctly interesting for many reasons. For example, a barge that we often dive is really nothing but a big hulk of wood on the bottom. There is nothing historical, no artifacts, and the water is murky, but she happens to be a great wreck for spear fishing, and we can always find lobsters living between her broken beams. Sport divers will most often find themselves diving on fishing vessels, tug boats, or ships sunk during one of the world wars. Each of these wrecks will differ drastically and will, therefore, have to be approached with a slightly different diving style. As varied as the types of shipwrecks are, so are water conditions surrounding them. If the same tug boat were sunk in Grand Cayman and in New York, the dives would be drastically different due to water clarity, temperature and currents or surge. Aside from location, depth plays a very important role. A tug sunk in fifteen feet of water might be a great beginner dive, but the same tug sunk in 130 feet should be left for the more experienced diver.

As divers explore different types of wrecks, they soon notice that the deeper wrecks are often more intact than the wrecks closer to shore which suffer from the constant pounding from the sea and become broken up and scattered over large areas.
