History of Benwood Wreck

The Benwood Wreck is a piece of history that has been preserved in the crystal-clear waters of Key Largo. The ship was originally built in England in 1906 and was used as a cargo vessel before being converted into a military transport vessel during World War II. In 1942, the ship was involved in a collision and sank off the coast of Key Largo, where it has since become a thriving artificial reef and a popular diving destination.

Located in the Florida Keys, the Benwood Wreck is a popular spot for divers and snorkelers who want to experience the diverse marine life that inhabits the area. From schools of colorful fish to majestic sea turtles and curious nurse sharks, the wreck is teeming with life that will leave you in awe.

The wreck is easily accessible from the shore and is suitable for divers and snorkelers of all skill levels. Experienced divers can explore the wreck’s nooks and crannies and observe its inhabitants, while vacationers can take a guided dive or snorkel with a local instructor to learn the basics and get a close-up look at the marine life.
