Fast Facts

Average Rating: 4.5
Average Depth: 45 ft.
Max Depth: 50 ft.

    This vessel is located in the Anchorage Site and was deployed in memory of Mathew Lawrence who was one of the founders of Aqua Video and was involved in the development of underwater video housing. He died while diving on the Andrea Doria in 1992. A plaque can be seen at the top of the pilot house. The vessel lies in 50 feet of water.

    The 110-foot barge was sunk in 1995 as part of the Dade County Artificial Reef Program. This is a fairly shallow wreck making it a good dive for beginners and can be easily penetrated. The wreck can occasionally be seen from the surface and is also a good site for snorkeling. Sites nearby can be accessed via rebar stakes. This is a great site for training new divers.
