Southwest Florida’s latest dive attraction is the USS Mohawk, a retired 165-foot WWII Coast Guard Cutter. In 2012, the ship made the journey from Key West to its ceremonial sinking site just 30 miles off the coast of Fort Myers. It now serves as a Veteran’s Memorial Reef and one of Florida’s most historically significant diving and fishing destinations.
The USS Mohawk sits at a depth of 90 feet and offers divers a superstructure teeming with marine life including sponges, corals, anemones, schools of bait fish and Goliath grouper.
Visit the official USS Mohawk website for more information on the ship’s rich history, a virtual dive experience and more.
