Explore Florida Keys

Take a Wreck Trek Dive Challenge

Things to Do — By Julie on April 26, 2011 at 5:29 pm

For divers visiting the Florida Keys, the Wreck Trek Dive Passport Program spotlights the Florida Keys Shipwreck Trail, and continues through Jan. 1, 2012.

Certified divers can explore the destination’s most appealing feature — a string of sunken vessels and artificial reefs — and be awarded for logging back-to-back wreck dives or dives on subsequent visits.

Divers taking up the challenge receive an “Official Florida Keys Wreck Trek” logbook upon reserving dive trips with more than 30 participating dive shops.

The dive passport highlights nine shipwrecks from Key Largo to Key West including Spiegel Grove, Duane, Bibb, Eagle, Thunderbolt, Adolphus Busch Sr., Cayman Salvager, Joe’s Tug and Vandenberg, the Shipwreck Trail’s southernmost addition.

After one wreck dive in each region of the Keys is accomplished, divers receive a personalized collage of Keys wrecks suitable for framing. Upon completing all nine wreck dives, qualifying divers are entered into a drawing for one of several grand prizes including dive equipment and dive-and-stay lodging packages, awarded after Jan. 1, 2012.

It is recommended that divers be current with their diving. Each wreck varies in skill level, and divers are encouraged to contact participating dive operators for information about the wrecks.

Local dive shops may ask divers to present a logbook or dive computer to be reviewed for air management skills and depth profiles from previous dives. Refresher courses are offered, and the Shipwreck Trail offers a unique opportunity for advanced and wreck diving certification classes.

  • Nice post. I learn something tougher on different blogs everyday. It’s going to always be stimulating to learn content from other writers and practice slightly one thing from their store. I’d choose to make use of some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link in your net blog. Thanks for sharing.
