Bibb Diver Information


Site Description: Intact 327' U.S. Coast Guard Cutter sunk in the 1987 as an artificial reef.

Location: Seven miles off shore in the Molasses Reef area in 135' of water.

Depth: 90'-135'

Visability: Averages 50' to 75'

Diver Level: Advanced diver with proven experience in similar environmental conditions

Comments: The Bibb is known to be a dangerous dive, and those requesting to dive it should be able to present a significant amount of experience. Due to its depth, stiff curents, and side orientation, wreck penetration is not recommended. There are currently no buoys marking the site, and drift diving is a common style for the Bibb.
