Location: Park at Puamana beach park which is at the south entrance of Lahaina (right by the "Welcome to Lahaina" sign)
The wreck is .57 miles off shore on a compass heading of 210° from the south end of Puamana beach park, making this either a boat dive or a wonderful scooter dive. You can see a buoy marking the wreck off shore with a pair of binoculars. If you see "Roxie" the Atlantis surface support vessel and tug boat, this bouy is about 200 yards north of it.
Facilities: Shower and Port-a-Jons
Nearest Food: Front street has numerous food establishments to try and enjoy.
Entry: Lots of large rocks in the water, so be careful you don't trip.
Site: The Carthaginian was a floating museum in Lahaina harbor since 1976. The 97 foot vesel was sunk by the Atlantis Submarine company in 2005 as part of their tour as an artificial reef.
The keel rests in 95 fsw and the deck is about 65 fsw.
This is an advanced dive and should be undertaken from shore with a great deal of planning. Plan on at least 20 minutes of scooter run time each way and due to depths and distance double tanks are recommended.
Depth: Keel 95 fsw
Dangers include: Rough surf at times, submerged rocks that are tripping hazards and shallow surface swim over the reef.
