Cement would seem to be a dangerous cargo! This wreck is on the sheltered Caribbean side of the island and sank in 2000. It was carrying a load of cement to Grenada from Trinidad through heavy seas.
The report of her sinking says that the load shifted and she started to take on water. She now sits completely upright in 30m of water, but this doesn’t stop divers wishing to stay shallower from visiting her decks at 25m. It’s amazing, and of great interest to local divers, how quickly life moves in and colonises a brand new artificial reef.
The Shakem is one of the favorite wreck dives at ScubaTech Dive Center Grenada.
