The Antilla was a German war ship in WWII that docked at North Point during its impending surrender. However, instead of giving themselves up, the captain opened up the sea cocks and flooded the boiler room, causing the ship to explode thus killing the entire crew. Today it stands as a popular dive site that has remained almost entirely intact. Several dive operators offer dives to the wreck, which covers 400ft. of explorable areas. It sits only 200 yards away from the shore, making it popular with the beginners. There is treasure abound!
