Almirante is a 200-foot steel freighter that was sunk off of Elliot Key in 1974. Although the wreck was originally in immaculate condition with beautiful coral growth, Hurricane Andrew picked her up and dumped her upside down on the bottom in 1992. Since then, sea life has re-inhabited this vessel making it a great site once again.
There are many areas of twisted metal which are great for exploration. Depths reach below 135 feet making this a dive for a more experienced diver. Red gorgonians, jewfish, and many other varieties of pelagic life call this ship home.
