Join Ocean First Divers on the one and only Heavy Metal Wreck Tour of Key Largo! This OFD special trip is back by popular demand. We will be diving the Spiegel Grove, Benwood, Bibb, and Duane wrecks over the course of 3 diving days. Key Largo's "Shipwreck Alley" is famous for these awesome wrecks and this is a great opportunity to check them off your diving wish list!
The shipwrecks off Key Largo provide some of the best dive sites for divers of all skill levels. The Heavy Metal Tour hits 4 of these awesome wrecks! Explore the depths of the Duane, where resident bull sharks patrol the perimeter. This Coast Guard cutter sits at approximately 130' and is one of the most exciting dives on the tour. The Duane's sister ship, the Bibb, sits on her starboard side at about the same depth as the Duane. The upper portion of the Bibb is accessed at about 90'. The Spiegel Grove is one of the most popular dives in Key Largo. This 510' long ship initially rested on her starboard side until Hurricane Dennis came through the Keys in 2005 and righted the wreck. The cranes and welldeck are impressive sights, especially when the current is running, attracting prolific schools of fish! The Benwood is a classic shipwreck, dating back to World War II. Huge schools of snapper, grunts, and goatfish call the Benwood home, making it a beautiful shallow dive to finish the day!
