Key West Scuba Diving Duane and Bibb 

U.S.C.G. Cutters: Duane and  Bibb
Diver Skill Level  Advanced
            Depth           50 to 130 Feet
Current          Strong


Scuba Diving, Key West, Florida Keys
 

These two U.S. Coast Guard Cutters were sunk in 1987. The Duane sets upright in 120' of water. You first encounter will be the crows nest at about 60'. The main deck is at a depth of 100'. There are  numerous levels in between. The doors on these levels have been removed. So what was once areas busy with activity are now home to various sea creatures. The Bibb lies on her starboard side. It was  hoped that it too would have settled upright but the best laid plans of mice and men. With the Bibb on her side this gives to an entirely different dive than the Duane. She rest in 130' of water with her hull is at a depth of 90'. Divers must go over the offshore side to explore the superstructure as it reaches out over the sea floor. Because the Bibb rest on its side the depth is much greater and is dove on less. The Bibb now stands upright after Wilma hit the keys. Leave it up to mother nature to fix some things that man messes up.
