This is a short clip of video from our dive on the wreck of the Hebe off the coast of South Carolina. The Hebe lies in about 110 feet of water. It sank on April 11, 1942 after colliding with the St Cathan. Both ships were sailing without running lights to avoid German U boats. The wreck was covered with bait fish, making navigation somewhat difficult for a new diver on the site. Many tropical fish including queen angels can be seen on the shipwreck. There were several huge lionfish as well. Many of the divers spent time searching for old bottles from South America. Some of the bottles included old poison bottles with Spanish writing. As promised, there is a beautiful giant frogfish at the end of the video. It took most of the dive to find, and of course it was only 10 feet from the anchor line.
