Length: 30 metres (100 feet)

Depth: 28 metres (92 feet) to keel, superstructure at 16m (52 feet)

Visibility: 20 - 30 metres (65 - 100 feet)

Rating: ****

Both wrecks are at a maximum depth about 27 to 28 meters and are about 100 feet long. 

The “Westsider” was officially sunk on the 4th of September 2004 and the “Boris” on the 10th of September 2007.

This is a spectacular site with an abundance of marine life however it is only recommended for experienced divers, the wrecks can be dived individually or both in one dive.

Carriacou Silver Diving



The 30 metre long wreck of the Westsider was officially sunk on September 4th 2004 and is in excellent condition. Fortunately it did not suffer any damage from hurricane Ivan! The dive is only suitable for experienced divers and there can sometimes be a current. A safe and enjoyable wreck dive with already loads of marine flora and fauna, especially nurse sharks and lobster, queen angelfish, french angelfish, barracudas, critters and more than average coral growth one expects in such a short time...
