Small Wreck,

Description

The Docton Cruiser is another fun, beginner level wreck in this area. The cruiser is intact and upright in about 40' deep and measures 40' long. The instrumentation can still be seen on top and inside the cabin. This wreck has obviously not been down for very long.

This is a nice wreck to visit along with the other Dockton wrecks as a follow-up dive to the Quartermaster Wreck.

Special Restrictions:

Visibility in this harbor is typically very poor (10' would be considered a good), and the bottom is very silty and easily stirred up so navigation underwater is difficult. You may lose your anchor line when it is only a few feet away. Beware - there are several corroding, pressurized fire extinguishers attached to the walls inside the cabin.

How to get there:

Located near the Docton Boat Ramp found on Maury Island. Depending on the season, you will find this wreck among the many private boats moored off shore in this little cove of Quartermaster Harbor. GPS is the easiest way to find this wreck.

Very cool wreck. I love checking out wrecks where all the equipment is basically intact. There wasn't much life here, but I did enjoy the dive in spite of that fact

The wreck is fun but not much life to see yet. It's a pretty new wreck still. If you venture inside, beware of the corroding fire extinguishers. I don't know what damage they can do but I really didn't want to be in there if one went off.

Fun little wreck. If you plan on diving here, hit all the small wrecks near by for a fun day of wreck diving.
