The MV Captain Keith Tibbetts is a great dive. Lots of beautiful coral, sponges and ocean life. The ship has so many wonderful photo opportunities. Banded Coral Shrimp color. Waves of schooling fish and a beautiful turtle too!

I love diving this wreck. Abundant wildlife and beautiful corals. Don't forget to look to the sand surrounding the wreck for the Garden Eels and numerous rays and Hogfish. If you're a geocacher don't miss finding the treasure hidden in plain view on the wreck but make sure you give one if you take one.

This is a must dive for all you wreck divers and non wreck divers. Guns and turrats are in good shape. Two nice swim through's.

A very fun dive on an easy to swim wreck. Don't miss the life out in the sand. There is always a friendly Secretary Blenny on the front to take a picture of. Lots of life.

This is a great way to see the insides of a wreck without going inside it! Since the wreck split in two after a hurricane, you can see a lot more of it. Part of it lies in shallower water for great pictures. If you're so inclined, you can penetrate the wreck in a couple of areas but it is... More

This wreck varies in depth from less than 40 ft at the coning tower to over 100 ft near the bottom making it an enjoyable dive for many dive levels. Also, you can penetrate it in several places or not, depending on your skill level. We went out with the Brac Shack but I believe Brac Reef Resort also dives... More

Fairly easy wreck dive. If you are so inclined there are several swim throughs that don't require a wreck cert. Look for the HUGE grouper midship.

Wreck diving is one of my favorite types of diving. This wreck is great for both the beginner and more advanced wreck diver.

...with quite a bit of wildlife - could easily be an advanced dive if divers choose to penetrate. Easy access via mooring lines - little current when we were there - very impressive and fun wreck - portions shallow enough for intermediate level divers - interesting patch reef to one side with a nice swim through.
