The exciting part of Key Largo diving Upper Keys is that this region is absolutely 'littered' with wrecks. Small wonder then that scuba diving Key Largo is so popular. After all, it is the undisputed diving capital of the world!

As you explore the shipwrecks listed above, like the Spiegel Grove, Bibb, Duane and Benwood featured on these dive maps, you'll come across those that are massive, while others are still shrouded in mystery. You'll also find that some of the named wrecks still have questions about their true identity.



There's also a vast number of unidentified wrecks lying in their watery graves. They silently wait for the day someone scuba diving Florida Keys will determine who they are, and give them back their rightful name.

Then there are the hidden wrecks. Those that lie buried beneath the sand or deep at sea, waiting for someone to find them.
