Did this wreck twice that weekend. First time there was a little current and my partner was running low on air so we cut dive short. Second time with a different partner was able to leisurely view ship. Lots of history in these waters. This...More

It was a great dive, but man the current kicked our butts. We could barely hang on to the down line. It was a little better when we hit the deck. There is a lot of things to see. Take a bright dive light and...More

A large wreck with a lot of wonderful things to see like large barracuda, puffer fish, lobsters, and eels; my max depth was 107'; however, it's about 120' to the sand. This was my first deep dive. I will definitely return soon, because you cannot...More

Did a two tank dive there and enjoyed it a Lot. It was my First wrack, but Not so exciting for experienced Wrack divers.

I just loved it ! It's pretty deep, visibility is good and the wreck is full of fishes. Swim through allowed.

Great dive site. It is a deep dive, about 120 feet. Has nice swim through opportunities and love that it is sitting upright compared to the Bibb which is on it's side. You will not regret diving this wreck.

Sitting next to sister ship Bibb (Duane sits upright and Bibb rests on its side) these are two great AOW dives. Duane has some great penetration diving too. Artificial reef that was prepped for diving prior to being sunk.

Beautiful wreck, saw a huge Goliath Grouper. We had a great day out there -- current was there but diveable and even at over 100' we had time to do some serious diving.
