Wreck Diving - Oriskany & More - July 26 -30, 2017
A once-in-a-lifetime dive, the sunken aircraft carrier USS Oriskany is the largest artificial reef in the world. This wreck is massive at 911 feet in length with a beam of 148'. Built shortly after World War II, the “Mighty O” served primarily in the Pacific, earning two battle stars for service in the Korean War and ten battle stars for service in the Vietnam War. USS Oriskany was sunk in 2006, 22 miles south of Pensacola in more than 200 feet of water. Nicknamed “the Great Carrier Reef,” the site is one of the most popular diving destinations in the United States.
Water depth to the top of the ship is 80 feet, and the flight deck is at 145 feet. There’s plenty of ship to explore above 100 feet, but an advanced certification, deep diver & wreck diver specialty rating are required . Both deep & wreck training will be offered. For those divers that wish to explore the flight deck, Advanced Nitrox Training & Decompression Procedures may be available upon request.
