Submarine trip in Aruba

The first country we went to while on our cruise was Aruba.
Our excursion there was a trip down in a submarine. This is the submarine as it started down with the next group. There were lots of these blue fish. Sorry I don't remember the names of any of the fish.
To see much you will need to enlarge.
One of the 3 ship wrecks we saw. 2 of the ships were sung by the Atlantis company, but it has been several years ago.
I was very disappointed in the quality of pictures down there,
but at 130 ft down the light was not always the best.

This photo is even darker than the rest, but if you enlarge I hope you can see the green eel. He is about center of the photo, just his head is sticking out.

Can you imagine spending the weekend here?
Bare necessities, shelter overhead, nothing else.

This last photo was taken from our cruise ship, looking out at port.
