Today approximately 6 dive shops use the EAGLE on a regular basis. A local dive operator says that his dive shop charters two trips per week with a minimum of four people, usually four to ten people, and dive almost year-round with January-March being the worst times due to weather. There are no major safety concerns other than strong currents that sometimes sweep over the ship. Divers may wish to use the mooring line to ascend/descend. This dive requires an advanced certification with currently logged dives.
