The Premier Ship Wreck of the Florida Keys!
510 feet in length, 12 decks in height...
The vessel was placed at a depth of about 130 ft in the area of Dixie Shoals off the coast of Key Largo, midway between the Benwood Wreck and The Elbow Reef. In spite of the best laid plans of all the dedicated people involved in this effort, the ship proved she had a mind of her own, and came to rest on her starboard side, rather than upright as hoped. But because of her massive size, divers reach the wreck at about 60 feet. She still provides fantastic wreck diving opportunities for divers at ALL levels of experience/training.
You can see the whole story, and many additional photos on the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce web site.
