Below is a brief description of the two diving sites being offered at Boardwalk Dive Center:
The USS New York wreck is fifty six feet in depth and usually there is no curren and the diving time lasts for thirty minutes. This ship was built in 1891 and it was used in the war between America and the Philippines. It stopped its commission in the thirties and later it was scampered by the US army so the Japanese soldiers would not have it. The whole wreck is still intact although it has gotten damage on the gun deck however the other decks are all interesting. You can access the wreck by passing through the ports for the guns. All the decks have a height of six feet. The lowest area which has not been fully explored is the room for the engine. The engines in this area are still intact however the degree of safety when exploring this deck is very low.
The El Capitan is also a popular wreck in Subic. The depth of this wreck is twenty seven feet and the current is very mild as well. This dive is really shallow and this is best for the beginners. The ship is one hundred thirty meters in length and going through the decks of this wreck is very easy. Divers may also see several aquatic animals like squids, gobies, lobsters, clownfish and sweetlips.
