Scuba Diving on a Sunken Air Craft Carrier, the USS Oriskany

I went down to Pensacola Florida with David and Bob to dive the USS Oriskany which was sunk a few years back to become the world's largest artificial reef. This ship is huge and very deep. The flight deck is somewhere around 140 feet so our dives did not last very long...maybe 20 minutes each. The folks at MBT Divers took care of us and really did a top notch job of getting us there and back safely. I would highly recommend this dive to any advanced open water diver.
