The 329-foot Coast Guard cutter Duane was sunk in 1987 to create an "artificial reef," which was specially prepared for advanced divers with clear, open hatchways and open rooms to explore.

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.
