The Witconcrete Wreck

the newestDive Site in Belize

Built after World War II for sugar transportation and molasses storage throughout Central America, this now-weathered, rust-streaked concrete ship is set to sink off the coast as it takes on another life as Belize’s newest dive site. Drawing the attention of international divers and snorkelers, as well as creating a natural, protected haven for our vibrant wildlife, it won’t be long before this wreck is cemented in our underwater landscape.

Planning to rest about 1 minute east of Blackbird Caye Resort, the dive site, called "the oasis" was intentionally chosen to eliminate coral reef impact. The ship is purported to be one of the largest in the Caribbean.
