San Juan, Grenada
The Bianca C was a 600 feet long cruise ship traveling the oceans since 1949 last owned by the Costa Line Genua/Italy. On her last voyage in October 1961 while anchoring off St. George's she caught fire after an explosion in the engine room. In a selfless response of the town all passengers and crew but two members of the crew, burnt in the initial blow, were rescued and taken care of by the hospitality of the Grenadiers. In failed attempt to tow the luxury cruise liner to shallow waters, it sank to 160 feet where it lies today. It is possible to dive the wreck right into the swimming pool at 130 feet as a no decompression dive.
Because of its size it is not possible to see her completely in one dive. The central structure has been collapsed downward and to starboard. There are plenty of deck features to explore, like the promenade decks. While moving forward you pass the davits overgrown with elegant black coral trees, delicate hydroids and sponges. The top of the bow is at 90 feet and the foremast is still standing upright usually populated with large schools of fish and circulated by barracudas, jacks and mackerels. Since sometimes strong currents floating over her and because of the depth, it is a dive for advanced and experienced divers only.
