The Andrea Doria, known as “the Mount Everest of diving”, sank in 1956 after a collision with the SS Stockholm. Over 700′ long and 29000 tons, the Andrea Doria is by far the largest ship sunk in diveable waters in North America, and even today yields a steady stream of china, artworks, and other prizes to those divers who are equipped and capable of going after them.
Depth is over 240′ to the sand, but more like 170′ to the port rail, which is now the top of the wreck. For advanced technical wreck divers only! Here are our guides for beginners.
