A new vessel, the Atlantic Breeze, has been added to the list of wrecks surrounding New Providence Island.
The sinking is the brainchild of Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas and measures an impressive 76m/250ft. The wreck was sunk on March 31, 2019.
The Atlantic Breeze started her life as a fuel tanker designed to carry Diesel, Gas, and Liquid Petroleum Gas LPG around the Bahamas. After completing her service, the vessel was donated to be sunk as an artificial reef. Needless to say before her sinking the ship was made safe, and all traces of fuels and oils were removed.
The vessel lies at a depth of 16.5m/55ft and joins a host of over 30 ships that Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas has sunk over the years, including two of her sister ships from the same fleet — the Carib Breeze and Tropic Breeze.
