Empire Mica, July 2011

The S.S. Empire Mica was a British Merchant Oil Tanker that was torpedeod off the Florida coast in 1942. People in the town of Port St. Joe could see the ship burning. On this dive, we found that most of the ship has collapsed. One small section, about 10ft x 10ft still rises to 80 feet below the surface. The rest of the dive is at depths of 80 to 120 feet deep. It still is a wonderful site with lots of marine life to enjoy.
