“Another Great Dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Interesting dive in that the habitat surrounding the Benwood is unique. Enjoyed the dive with my 20-yr. old granddaughter.

“Average dive good for refresher dive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

This is an average dive. Great for a refresher dive when first arriving at the keys. There isn't much left of the wreck to see now. Though, there are lots of fish to see.

“Our first wreck!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

As part of our advanced training we did this wreck and it was our first one. Wonderful start to our day. A great dive and not too deep at all. Lots of fish and coral.
