These digital photos were all taken in March, 2002 on our 10-day trip aboard the liveaboard diveboat Turks & Caicos Aggressor. The Silver Banks are an 20-80 foot shelf about 80 miles north of Dominican Republic in the Atlantic Ocean. This freighter wreck was blown upon the shallow reef in the 1970s.
