The Duane Wreck

When people talk about the world's best wreck dives, the Duane is often mentioned as a text-book example of the perfect artificial reef. Intentionally sunk on November 27, 1987, the 327 foot long Duane sits upright on the sandy bottom at 120 feet offering nearly 70 feet of relief. The majestic crow's nest tower reaches to within 50 feet of the surface, and the ship offers many decks and open rooms to explore without fear of getting lost.

The bow points into the prevailing northerly current where a gang of resident barracudas lay claim to the turf by undulating slowing in the sometimes swift current, looking as menacing as possible. Don't let that tough-guy stance fool you -- they're more scared of clumsy bubble-blowing monsters in lime-green wet suits than you are of them.
