Ford Model-T Dive
Coral Reef Diving in Key Largo with Sail Fish Scuba
Ford Model-T Dive Site Description
When Jen first became a scuba instructor years ago and was working for a local Fl. Keys dive shop, the crusty old handlebar mustache wearing boat Captain she crewed at dive boat with kept telling her about all the secret dive sites he found when he had first moved to the Florida Keys. Jen being the great listener she is, took extensive notes over the months working with this captain. He would tell her to grab mask/snorkel & swim out this way or that, and sure enough he was exactly right about all the sites including this one! There laying on the bottom, having fallen off the ( Barge ) that use to be tied out at the Elbow reef until Hurricane Donna removed it, was the 1908 – 1912 Ford Model T-Car!
If you want to see this site, request Owner of Sail Fish Scuba Jen to guide you, as she and very very few other living soles know where this lays!
