The Palawan is an old steel hulled cargo ship that was intentionally sunk as an artificial reef
in 1977. Her specs at sinking were approx. 441' x
57'. She sits in about 126'-130' of water in the
sand surrounded by a debris field that includes a
stack of telephone poles and lost fishing tackle,
including some mono line. This site is known for
legal sized ling cod in the wreck as well as barn
doors on the sandy bottom surrounding the wreck.
Rock crabs are stuffed into every nook and cranny
of the wreck they can find. The lobster here is
good too, but well out of season during June. The
last couple of times we dove this wreck the vis was in excess of 80' on the wreck itself. This
is an interesting site for both macro and wide
angle photography and video.
