Sunken Beauty

In 1983, the little freighter Hermes coughed to death off Bermuda on a voyage between Rhode Island and the Cape Verde Islands. Written off as totaled, the ship--built during World War II in Pennsylvania--found new life as an artificial reef: Stripped down and specially prepped for an environmentally friendly burial at sea, the Hermes came to rest a mile offshore near Horseshoe Bay.

Divers love it as Bermuda's best-known and probably most photogenic wreck: sitting upright, all prim and proper, on a pale seafloor, and attended by all sorts of tropical fish, from barracuda to sergeant majors.
