The Deep Freeze -- now one of Miami�s most popular advanced dive sites -- was a 210' freighter sunk in 135' of water in October 1976. She had a 33.5' beam and displaced 1,138 gross tons of water. Her top deck can be reached at 110'.
The Deep Freeze was sunk in the artificial reef site known as Pflueger, located north of Government Cut and south of Haulover Islet. Fairly strong currents are the norm here.
The Deep Freeze is a popular spot for local fisherman and spear fisherman. Due to the monofilament lines on this wreck and the heavy buildup of silt, the Deep Freeze is only recommended for advanced divers. Be sure to bring a knife for the monofilament. The wreck offers excellent penetration for the experienced wreck diver.
Hurricane Andrew separated a 35' section of the stern from the hull in 1992, but otherwise caused little damage.
