West Scuba Diving The Elbow
Diver Skill Level Novice
Depth 12 - 35 Feet
Current (none to strong)
The most popular dives on the Elbow are on its wrecks, with their abundance of
fish. There are three major wrecks on the reef. The Tonawanda sunk in 1866. It
is the most northern and rest offshore, with its metal hull. The City of
Washington is a schooner that sunk in 1917. It lies just offshore of the tower.
The Civil War Wreck sits just north of the tower. With the remains of its wooden
hull held together with iron fasteners. Of these three the schooner is the most
visited. Its broken metal hull gives a nice backdrop to picture taking of the
fish that call this wreck home.
