The Salvatierra "The Wreck"
This site is the wreck of the cargo ferry “La Salvatierra” (an ex-U.S. Navy WWll LST) which sank in 1976 moments after striking Swanee Rock (subsequently fitted with a warning light) of the hundreds of passengers not one life was lost and the Insurance Company actually paid everybody for their losses …50 pesos each! The Salvatierra is laying on a sand bottom in 60ft of depth, and is approximately 70% intact with both propellers exposed. Many of the trucks which were her cargo are still visible and their tires remain inflated to this day. The wreck has formed an “artificial reef” attracting a wide variety of sea life. This is an interesting and enjoyable wreck dive with no penetration.
