New dive sites in Grenada

3 New Wrecks Sunk in Grenada ‚Äď Now 14 Wrecks to Dive

--(PR.com)-- Project developer Peter de Savary and his "Port Louis" Team cleaned out Lagoon bay at St. George’s from abandoned ship wrecks and placed them under water as new dive attractions.

The biggest of the ships is the freighter ‚ÄúHildur‚ÄĚ whose owner used it to ship scrap metal to Trinidad for recycling. During a stormy day a barge anchored next to the freighter sank right on top of the freighters anchor chain, causing it to capsize. Unfortunately there was no heavy lifting equipment available, so the half sunken wrecks were an eyesore for almost 10 years.
