Lower Keys

Joe's Tug

There seems to be a mystery as to how this 65-foot steel hull shrimper came to sit in 68 feet of water just off Key West. The hull is now starting to break down after Hurricane Georges was here. You will see schools of Grunts, Bar Jacks and sometimes Elvis (the Jewfish) has been seen hanging out here.

The tug lies SSE of Key West in a depth of 60 to 65 foot. This vessel's remains are surrounded by soft and hard coral formations and large sponges. This wreck is home to some very friendly moray eels and inquisitive fish. Joe’s Tug is an easy and rewarding dive for both beginners and experienced divers.
