A 165-foot steel-hulled freighter built during World War II, The Hermes is a popular wreck dive because it stands upright in eighty feet of crystal clear water. In 1984, long after her military service was over, the ship arrived in Bermuda as a Panamanian registered freighter with engine trouble. Repairs were estimated to cost far more than the ship was worth, so she was soon abandoned by the crew and thus became an artificial reef one mile off Bermuda’s southern shores.
