What an amazing shipwreck to dive on!!! There is so many openings you can dive throe entire upper section, even for those who do not like penetrate it is a pure joy. Watch for currents, they are pretty strong. Marine life is exceptional, I had seen 300 lbs Goliath Grouper, many Barracudas.

Have been diving the Duane for 19 yrs and though it has gone through many changes it is still the best dive in the Fl Keys. Try to get the center buoy attached to the smoke stack. It allows you to go to bow or stern depending on the current as well as a multi level dive to end on. Awesome coral and fish. Night dives are beautiful as well!

USCG Duane lies 70-130 feet deep. Excellent dive for advanced divers. Was able to take some great pictures. Helpful with the ropes and buoys attached to get back to dive boat.

Plenty to see and explore both inside and out, again watch out for the currents. This artificial reef is an ex US Coastguard cutter so a fascinating dive for a range of depths and experience.
