The Valiant
Located in: North Americas Pacific >> United States (west) >> Catalina  
The Valiant is one of the easiest wreck dives. Her stern is at the bottom of a sandy slope in 70 feet; her bow points due north in 100 feet of water. Since she’s on the leeward side of Catalina, the ocean is nearly always calm. If there is any current it will most likely sweep from bow to stern and be gentle. The Valiant’s bow and stern retain their distinctive shapes (the stem is round, not square) and the outline of the hull is clearly visible as you descend on her. In the collapsed midships area a mini kelp forest has sprouted.
