"Some Watery History"

Antigua has recorded more than a 100 shipwrecks around her shores. Most have been explored, but some like the Andes Shipwreck, remain an historical resource. This wreck is an easy swim. It's just off the beach of Deep Bay so you can use either snorkeling or diving gear. There is an abundance of marine life, including fish and coral life worth exploring. The Andes Shipwreck was a barque which had been built in England in 1874. At the time of her demise, 7th June 1914, she had been en route to Chile, while carrying pitch for the construction of roads. The pitch had been poorly stowed, thus creating friction, which lead to a fire. Her bow dipped first and she quietly dropped to the ocean floor. One of her masts could be still seen up to a few years ago.
