About

Every scuba diver who visits Bermuda should log bottom time on the Hermes, the island's most popular wreck dive. Hermes remains fully intact, sitting upright on the bottom in 80 feet of crystal-clear water. Originally a buoy tender, the 165-foot steel-hulled ship was built during World War II, but she arrived in Bermuda decades later as a Panamanian freighter with engine trouble. Abandoned by her crew, Hermes was eventually sunk as an artificial reef in 1985, a mile off the South Shore. Divers can explore inside the cargo hold, galley and wheelhouse, and see the winch, cargo boom and mast on the deck.
