I dive this site whenever I'm in Key Largo. Easy to navigate with plenty of fish and occasionally some big and notable ones.

Great area to dive with experience divers The wreck was tremendous and the people at Horizon Divers were a great added help on the dive. The whole day was great for the dive and ability level was medium to experienced.

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.
