FLORIDA KEYS WRECK TREK

Eagle

Wreck Trek Overview

Depth Range:  80 to 120 feet

Experience Level: Advanced to Expert

Sunk December 19, 1985

The 287 foot freighter Eagle was originally named the Aaron K and was used to transport scrap paper between Miami and South America. On December 19, 1985, the Miami and Dade County Bomb Squad set explosives that sent the ship to the bottom in 90 seconds. She now rests on her starboard side with her bow pointing towards shore in 120 feet of water on a sand bottom. Her cargo bays act like caverns with schools of fish swimming in an out of them. There is usually a slight current over this wreck, and visibility ranges from 50 to 100 feet.
