Snorkel at two famous Bermuda shipwrecks, each situated on the edge of a surrounding reef loaded with colorful coral and fish. This beautiful reef is also treacherous, and has more than 300 shipwrecks to prove it. The Constellation, a wooden-hulled four-master built in 1918, had a checkered history before sinking as a cargo boat in 1943. Scattered remains of the Montana went down more than 150 years ago, but her iron paddlewheel frames remain intact.
• Constellation: Snorkel among an array of fish populations, including parrot fish, trumpets and juveniles.
• Montana: Heavily overgrown with coral, remaining structures are adorned with hard and soft corals, attracting grey snappers and barracuda.
• Bermuda Waters: Both sites lead to spectacular corals, colorful algae, and a multitude of fish, from predators to Bermuda chubs.
