DIVE #1: ULTRA FREEZE (135’) This 207’ refrigerated freighter was built in 1959 and was owned by Trans Caribbean Lines and managed by Trans Caribbean Agencies Inc. of Miami. In 1983, in dramatically poor condition, she set sail from Ecuador to Miami loaded with 200 tons of shrimp valued at $1.5 million dollars. Due to her condition, she was forced to stop in Panama for repairs that never happened. Several months later with the cargo of badly decomposed shrimp, she was towed to Miami to face numerous lawsuits claiming negligence. While on the Miami River, she was abandoned, vandalized, and slowly stripped until she was worthless. In 1984, she was scuttled. In 1992, Hurricane Andrew ripped the starboard side of the hull open, bent the hull 90 degrees at amidships and stripped the pilothouse from the hull. The is extensive penetration possible, but care should be taken due to fallen electrical cables and general deterioration.

DIVE #2: TACOMA (135') The Tacoma is a 165' steel freighter that was sunk in 2002. This wreck remains in good condition and intact. Big game fish are often found on this dive because it is rarely visited. The Tacoma was seized as part of the Operation River Walk, a drug confiscation mission. This dive is deep and great for seeing pelagic life and the beauty that lies underwater.

DIVE #1: NORTHERN LIGHT (190’) This 300’ Great Lakes steam freighter, after the owner attempted to commit insurance fraud by setting fire to the ship, sank in 1930. The exact position of this wreck was not known until 1989 when a group of local divers positively identified the site, previously known as the "Elbow Wreck," as that of the Northern Light. The wreck lies in two parts in 190’ of water. The bow is upright in the sand with its anchor hanging on the starboard side, still secured by its chain to the winch. Aft of this is a cargo hold full of modern anchors left by fishermen unable to retrieve them after having set them into the wreck. Further aft is the stern of the ship upside-down on top of the midships; the rudder, turned hard to starboard, is within 145’ of the surface. Penetration is easily conducted on this wreck, as divers can enter on one side, swim aft of the boilers, and then turn to head back out on the other side passing the large boilers. Portholes with glass intact, still adorn the hull of the wreck on either side. Seldom visited, the wreck has developed a good amount of coral growth and attracted numerous fish and other sea life in the 70+ years since her sinking.

DIVE #1: SHARK DRIFT DIVE (90’)

DIVE #2: SHARK WRECK DIVE (80’)

DIVE #3: SHARK WRECK DIVE (80’)

Emerald Charters knows how to find the sharks. In Jupiter, sharks are seen on a regular basis. While there is no guarantee that sharks are spotted on every dive (since they are wild Pelagic creatures), a variety of sharks are almost always seen with bull sharks, hammerheads, tiger sharks, and lemon sharks as some of the more common sightings. These drift dives off Jupiter’s coast are like no other around. There’s generally a swift current with clear blue waters. Nitrox certification is required before you set your sights on this great dive experience with Emerald Charters.
