WHat shallow wreck would you recommend for a newbi in florida. Perferably down by the keys.

There is the Benwood. Great dive but really only the hull left. Sits in about 20-30' of water if I remember right. Lots of fish and marine life. Great dive and I have snorkeler the wreck before.

There is also the City of Washington.

The Benwood in Largo was a decent dive. Other than that not a ton, to my knowledge the wrecks out of the West Palm Beach/Jupiter area are deep in the 90+ ft range

There is also the Benwood... looks like it is about 25'-40'. Nothing too crazy. I personally have not dove it but my buddy that lives down there has and said it was basic but fun.

Are there any wrecks that could be done from shore.

No you need a boat to dive in the Keys.

I figured. I was hoping some one was stupied enough to float right by the road or something.
