Does anyone have any tips/hints for snorkeling the old Willie-T? Are there any NPT mooring balls available there yet? Anchoring? Any info would be appreciated.


I spent all my money on "Boats", "Broads", and "Booze"; the rest I wasted!

2 Balls there. Didn't snorkel, but put 5 divers in.

They seemed to enjoy it more than the Kodiak (which only one of them found.) But could just have been the conditions. They really liked the characters down there...and the two giant lobsters they saw. (I don't dive...or even snorkel much these days as my ears get all messed up and feel like crap.)

Kirk,

Is the Willie T a descent snorkel? I read that it's in 35 ft of water. Is that the deck or the top of the mast?
I did the Kodiak pre-Irma and it was just an OK snorkel. I'm sure it would be a great dive.

Curious too about the depth. Would be a fun snorkel stop.

Bottom of the keel is about 60 feet. Decks about 30 to 40. Vis has been poor in that area. Usually can’t see the ship until down 10 feet or so.
