A Diver Explores the Wreck of the Northwind in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands

The Northwind is an old tug boat sunk off the coast of St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. As it is in fairly shallow water, it is quite easy for divers to explore. Its most impressive aspect is that it is encrusted from bow to stern, with colorful sponges and corals.
