This hauntingly beautiful cargo ship was sunk in the 90's after its useful life had run its course. In order to give it renewed purpose the local community gathered to find it a new home as an artificial reef. Thus one of Utila's favourite dive sites was born, and a new reef sprung from the ship's structure.
The Haliburton Wreck lies at exactly 30m, or 100 feet. Because it was lowered carefully, the ship remains intact and sits upright on the sand. It boasts 3 different levels that rise above the hollow cargo area. At the very top you will find the wheelhouse, a favourite spot for divers to swim through and be surrounded by many different fish. It is the perfect wreck for beginners who are exploring these depths for the first time or for experienced divers keen on practicing their wreck penetration skills.
