wreck of the King Mitch, Grenada dive site - Courtesy of Kiran Lall

Scuba Diving in Grenada Caribbean

Site: King Mitch

Location: Four miles from Hardy Bay, St Georges

Description: US Navy Minesweeper

Length:

Depth: 34 metres

Visibility: 15 metres

Rating: ***

The wreck of King Mitch sank in 1981 four miles off shore after the ship leaked and its bilge pump failed. Fortunately all of the crew survived. The wreck now lies in the sand on its port side, and because of its small size it can be covered quickly. There may not be that much marine life around the wreck, but if you are lucky you may see nurse and reef sharks, rays and turtles as well as other pelagics. The blue water makes a fantastic ascent and descent.
