Saint-George wreck

Originally known as the MV Norbrae, the St George was a transatlantic cargo ship built in 1962 in Scotland. Measuring an impressive 73m long, it transported wheat cargo between Norway and the Americas. Abandoned after 20 years of service, in the Santo Domingo harbour, it was renamed after Hurricane George in 1999. It was that same year and lies between 30 and 40m deep. Look out for the numerous barracudas that surround the wreck.
