Scuba Diving in Grenada Caribbean
Site: Shak Em
Location: Off Quarantine Point, St Georges
Description:Small cargo ship
Length: 20 metres (65 feet)
Depth: 32 metres (105 feet)
Visibility: 20 metres (65 feet)
The Shak Em is a recent casualty, sinking in 2001 and has the possibility of plenty of penetration. The ships cargo was concrete, which can still be seen in the holds. It sank when the cargo shifted as a result of being overloaded, whilst in sight of the harbour. The ship lies upright, both anchors are down with the anchor chains still connected and there is a crane midships. If you drop onto the stern it is possible to work your way through the cabin decks and down into the lower rooms. On the second deck there is a generator room at the rear, but it is dark down here so a torch is essential. The entrance to the engine room is on the starboard, holding a large engine and some tool kits. Despite it sinking recently, there is already a lot of life established on it including barracuda.
Great little wreck only 20 mtrs so you can get plenty of time on her, some nice little swim throughs and plenty of life. Dived her with Devotion2Ocean based at Grenadian by Rex Resorts, thanks, brilliant diving operation.
