The Felipe Xicotencatl lies in the clear Caribbean waters off the Yucatan peninsula. It is 184 feet long, 33 feet wide, and sits in about 80 feet of water. The ship sits on a sandy bottom between the popular dive sites of Tormentos and Chankanaab on the western side of Cozumel Island, in the state of Quintana Roo. She sits upright with her bow pointing toward the beach, and she is literally moored to the bottom with long chains and cables which make sure this great hulk doesn’t move even if a hurricane should cross the area.
