Once a U.S. Navy crane barge, the Marion was sunk in 1988 by AUTEC, the local U.S. Navy base. It's located on a large sandy area dotted with coral heads. The top of the wreck is at a depth of 50 feet (15 m), while the base is at the site's maximum depth of 70 feet (21 m). Sea life is plentiful here, from the southern stingray that glides over the sandy bottom, to the spiny lobster and the green moray eel that hide among the wreck's crevices. It's also a habitat for Peacock flounders, hogfish, large grey snappers, Jaw fish, Sand Tile Fish, goatfish and of course the green garden eels that blanket the surrounding sandy bottom.
