Scuba diving in Nahoon Wreck
The Nahoon shipwreck is one of the best dives in Martinique. Here, diving is recommended for advanced divers. The boat was purposefully sunk in 1993 by a few dive centers and the Regional Tourism Committee, aiming at building an artificial reef for divers. Today it lies flat at 35m/114ft deep on a sandy bottom. On the way down, divers can see the last mast standing up, with its rigging swinging around in the current.

Scuba diving is available all year-round. Average air temperatures range from 22 -30C/72 -86F. Water temperature averages are 29C/84.2F in Summer and 26C/78,8F in Winter. The depth of the site is 40m/131ft. Average visibility 10-30m/32-98ft.
What to see
Check out the main deck and the impressive wheel, the dock and the forward cabin: a stunning amount of marine life has settled down there, including barracudas, snappers, crawfish, trevallies, and giant morays.
