Benwood Underwater Tour

French Reef, Key Largo

Florida National Marine Sanctuary


The Benwood historic marker, with a mooring buoy floating in the background, helps divers locate and identify the site. There are four mooring buoys which surround the site, and a typical dive begins by descending along the down chain of the buoy.

Once underwater, we will progress along the vessel:

Bow section at the front of the ship
Engine mount of the Benwood
Cam shaft of the engine
Stern section of the Benwood
Anchor many yards away from the hull
Aerial photo from high above the site
Additional footage of diver interest
