when in the Keys, as a diver, you should dive the Duane. Of course the same wreck is a different dive depending on the dive shop, so do your homework.

Great wreck, one of my favorites, i am a retired scuba instructor and this is a fave among dive pros. Lots of places to enter the wreck, lots of profile and sea life. Current can be strong.

This wreck is a great dive! Lot's of sea life, including a huge grouper, a coupe of large nurse sharks and lots of smaller fish. This wreck is in about 120 feet of water.

This is a great dive. The ship is upright and sits at roughly 100 ft. There was no current while we were there, though I'm told it can occasionally get fairly strong. Fish life was great - there was a large 8 ft. nurse shark...More
