Built in 1957, this French built oil tanker ran aground in 1978 in Punta Cana. This resulted in a massive oil spill. The ship was 127 metres long and had a depth of 15 meters. The ship is visible near the Bahia Principia Hotel in Punta Cana. It makes for a great landmark and an exciting dive for scuba divers. You can even watch it from the comfort of the beach.
