History

St George Wreck is one of the most beautiful wrecks in the Caribbean. Built in 1962 in Scotland this  ship was used as a freighter to transport grain and flour between Norway and America. After 20 years of service the ship ended up in the port of Santo Domingo and in 1999 was sunk about a half mile / 800 meters from Coral Point diving in Bayahibe. The original name was different, but before sinking it, they named the wreck St George after the hurricane George, that hit the Caribbean the year before (1998).
