Wellwood Wreckage Area Molasses Reef
Coral Reef Diving in Key Largo with Sail Fish Scuba
Wellwood Wreckage Area Dive Site Description
M/V Wellwood in 1984 ran aground at this location on the North West End of Molasses Reef causing the most extensive damage to this reef it had ever seen. The shipping company was sued and forced to pay to repair the reef. Since 1984 many organizations worked to rebuild this area and it is not by far some of the prettiest parts of Molasses Reef.
