My favorite wreck in Largo- not a ton of bottom time on air due to depth. Nitrox or re-breather helpful. Take a look at a slate to gain an understanding of how wreck sits ect. before the dive. Highly recommend.

This wreck is a beautiful upright wreck with the deck in about 100ft. The only negative about this wreck is the strong current. I have heard other divers talk about this, but we wanted to spear lion fish so we went. The current was ripping...More

This was a cool dive. Lots to see but it's deep...if you're double-dipping pay attention to your computer. I would dive this again in a heartbeat

The Duane is an intact ship. Most of the time it has a heck of a current on it. Advanced divers can enjoy it. Some days there is not a fast current. Talk to the dive companies. I recommend Rainbow Reef Dive Company.
