Scuba Diving

Two wreck sites popular for scuba diving are the former 255-foot German gunship Schurz, seized by the United States and sunk following a collision in 1918, and the Papoose, a 412-foot tanker sunk by a German torpedo in 1942, which is now inhabited by docile sand tiger sharks.

Olympus Dive Center. With three dive boats, Olympus Dive Center offers full- and half-day charters, special charters for divers seeking decompression certification, equipment rentals, and lessons.
