The Cristobal Colon is Bermuda's largest shipwreck, measuring 499 feet in length and three decks high. This Spanish trans-Atlantic luxury liner was completed in 1923 and operated between New York and Central America. She was wrecked on October 25, 1936, when she crashed into a coral reef at a speed of 15 knots. Today she lies in 55 feet of water and has become a haven for large groupers and a variety of reef fish. The Cristobal Colon is one of the few wrecks that has rectangular portholes. Her wreckage is scattered across 100,000 square feet of sea floor, offering endless hours of fascinating exploration.
