The 98-meter long ferry now lies intact on her starboard side in 32 meters of water, creating a unique artificial reef. The wreck itself is covered in hard and sort corals, and black coral trees. For certified, “wreck divers” it is possible to penetrate the wreck via the passenger walkways on the port side. For those interested in learning more about wreck penetration check out our PADI Wreck Specialty Course. Due to the relatively deep depth and size of the Dona Marilyn, the ideal way to experience the wreck in its entirety is to dive it on a blend of enriched air.
