The Blue Fire, a 175-ft freighter, was sunk in January 1983 in 110-ft of water.

This vessel was seized by the Coast Guard during the Cuban Exodus. This wreck is fairly broken up, though sits fairly upright on a white sandy bottom. It is an easy and safe wreck to penetrate and abounds with sea life which reportedly includes cobia, grouper, amberjack, barracuda and parrotfish

Average depth 30 m / 98.4 ft

max depth 33.5 m / 109.9 ft

Average Current: Medium ( 1-2 knots)


Feel free to recover trash, catch lobster, and eliminate lionfish.
