An artist's painting of the sunken ship before it was hit by the hurricane.

Friday was the day everyone looked forward to the dolphin encounter. But first, we dove to 110ft to explore the wreck of the Aguila. She was sunk by Anthony's Key Resort in 1997. The ship is approximately 200ft long and was broken up into three pieces by hurricane Mitch in 1998. Exciting stuff! Finally, things settled down after lunch as we mingled with the locals in the town of West End.
The ship's resident green moray eel pays us a visit before returning to its lair.
Now in shallow waters we hit up the dolphin encounter.
Swimming with the dolphins!
