Surrounded by an underwater desert, the 73mtr. long St.George Shipwreck hosts a variety of marine
organisms; Marine sponges, corals, schools of fish and even barracudas feel at home in the St. George. Originally known
as the M.V. Norbrae, the St.George was built in 1962 in the Ardossan shipyard in Strathclyde, Scotland. The 73mtr long,
transatlantic cargo ship that transported wheat and barley between Norway and America, was shut down after 20 years of
service in the port of Santo Domingo and renamed in 1999 after Hurricane George. On 12 June 1999, the St. George was
sunken off the coast of La Romana-Bayahibe to create an artificial reef and an interesting place to dive. The Atlantic
Princess another interesting wreck, was in the past in Bayahibe in use and was prepared to be intentionally sunk to
turn into an artificial reef for divers. On August 15, 2008, she was moved by the huge waves of tropical storm Fay to
the beach next to the Dreams Hotel.
