  • This is a nice wrack you should log. Choose one of the dive centers and you will love what you see. It is an advanced dive though.  more »
  • Many schools of Fish... and don't forget to look for the anchor and get your pic with it. Easy to navigate as a diver, can't get lost around a huge wreck! I hear its a great place to night dive too!  more »
  • This is a great second dive after a deep first dive. Lots of fish, even a green moray was hanging out. This is a very easy dive and great for newly certified folks.  more »

  • This dive site is a WWII shipwreck that features enormous congregations of tropical fish and marine organisms. It's a good spot to find all the typical underwater life of the Florida Keys. However, it's excellent for finding some of the harder-to-find species: High Hats, Spotted Drum, and Flying Gurnards. The prettiest fish in the ocean, the Immature Queen Angel, is reliably present in the compartments of the upper superstructure. Stunning!
  • Great dive site but the current that day was horrible... lucky we even got in the water.
  • This cargo ship sunk after a collision with another ship (both running without lights to avoid German subs) during World War II. It was raked and flattened to avoid clogging shipping lanes, so it lies flat and opened up on the bottom about 30'-40' down, easy access for recreational diving and a nice wreck dive for those who aren't up to diving through dark, enclosed spaces. The wreck functions as an artificial reef so a lot of marine life has set up shop here. This probably isn't going to excite advanced divers but is a great way to break up a set of coral reef dives with something a little different.
  • Very easy to fine. There are anchoring buoys surrounding the wreck that makes it extremely convenient to hook up and get in.
  • Great, historic wreck. Hangout for turtles and parrotfish.
