    Where is a good place to go for good wreck diving that is shallow (above 90 feet)? I have heard St Kitts is a good place. Anyone been there? Any other suggestions?
    Thanks

    If you like shallow wreck diving, you can't beat Bermuda. 60 ft max, (most at 30-50ft), great visibility and lots of neat wrecks. Search the boards. Real easy diving too.

    New Jersey - they don't call it "Wreck Valley" for nothing!

    Here's a small listing of the more than 2,000 wrecks we've got here. The vast majority are in 90' or less.

    We dove a bunch of wrecks in the British Virgin Islands, all above that depth. No penetration, but some pretty cool wrecks to look at.

    Well if you want Virgin wrecks the place to go is Newfoundland Canada. well over 15,000 wrecks recorded. The temperature can range from having to use a dry suit to Southern california temps with a wet suit but you will feel the thermalclines. There is a group of WW2 wrecks called the Bell Island wrecks. Easy to get to and they are very intact. The deep one completely intact. Even the radio is still in the radio room. Other then that we found 13 cannons in 13ft, Tons of brass in 20-30 in several locations (all that's left), 2 whalers one coming out of the water and one 3 feet below (intact with gun) next to each other. Plenty more. See a rock, ask a local, and more likely you will be diving a virgin wreck. Not many divers there. I am not kidding. It's an amazing place.

    Shallow wrecks rarely last due to storm surge.

    CoCoView Roatan has an intact 140' upright and intact tanker as a shore dive, it funs from 35~65fsw bottom, a decompsing DC3 lies near it at 30'. As a nearby moored boat dive there is the Mr. Bud at 55fsw, a shrimper.

    Shallow wrecks? Bunches of them in and around Los Roques (Venezuala).

    As was already said above, Bermuda is well known as a place with may wrecks in shallow waters. Be warned though, the island itself is very expensive.
