Serapis Wreck

The Serapis wreck is found 21m deep. Before its sinking in 1781 by the British Navy, the Serapis was a warship captured by the American and commandeered by Capitan John Paul Jones. It is of great importance in United States history as it was one of the first victims of the battle of the American Revolution. The site is particularily interesting for those who are passionate about the history of the island of St Marie. A large anchor was found there giving away the wrecks location. A gun, bullets and several bottles of rum where also found!
