The Berry Islands Shipwreck Directory  Bahamas Shipwrecks
Historical and current Berry Islands, Bahamas Shipwreck Information and images for scuba divers, fisherman and marine historians.

The Berry Islands are comprised of over thirty small islands with the largest
and most frequented by tourists being Great Harbour Cay and Chub Cay.
The Berry Islands lie 35 miles north of Nassau, and are known for their
excellent game fishing, bone fishing, and of course diving. There are miles
of wall diving to be done along the barrier reef of Chub Cay. Due to the
great visibility, averaging over 100 feet, and the large assortment of marine
life living on the reef, divers will find many nice photo opportunities.

Port side of the Panther, a 70 foot long tugboat sitting in 60 feet of water. Photo courtesy Cathie Cush.

The Panther wreck was a steel, 70 foot long tug boat. She rests on a slight
starboard tilt in 60 feet of water still completely intact and upright. The
cause and actual date of her sinking is still unknown.

Wide angle photography is best for this dive. Dramatic bow or stern shots,
or photos taken of divers entering her wheel house should result in unique
photos worth framing. The Panther is, to say the least, a beautiful picture
perfect shipwreck.


This site is a bit more than just a four seated, single engine Piper airplane.
Other wreckage close by includes a Toyota truck and a Ford van. In our
opinion, this site should be called "The Junkyard". Depth of the assorted
wreckage ranges from 40 to 60 feet, and the plane, van and truck are all
decent photo opportunities.
