A great dive where you can often see the wreck as soon as you drop in the water. Tends to be frequented by a number of nurse sharks and some large barracuda. I am never disappointed when i dive here and will always ensure I visit when I am diving in the area

Bring your flashlight....this is one of the most color dives you will find in the Keys. This boat is loaded with sea life and covered in beautiful coral. I dove this on the same day as the USCGC Bibb. Two totally different dives but both amazing in different ways. The Duane is an overdose of color while the Bibb gave us that somewhat eerie feeling...but it was sooooo cool!

Fantastic shipwreck to dive. She sits straight up, great marine incrustations over the years...Big fish call it home.

Loved this site - its clear and clean - easy to get around - perfect for beginner wreck divers. Awesome sealife and one big old sea turtle. Really a great time and a great dive!

I had a great dive on the USCGC Duane on a day with small waves and no current. The wreck has an abundance of marine life, the best I've seen so far in the Key Largo area. You can see most of the ship in two dives.
