The Annapolis is 113m in length (371 feet), lying straight up on an almost level bottom. It's possible to drop down as deep as 32m/105ft at low tide, or stay shallower on deck structures at 12-22m/35-70ft. The ship was sunk in 2015 and has not yet attracted much sea life, but it's massive size and structural layout make it an exciting contrast to the small wrecks in Howe Sound that can be reached when shore diving.

The site is ideal for certified Open Water divers and for Advanced Open Water students.
