The Stern section of the USCG Bibb has a mooring attached to port side of the wreck at the fantail at 110 feet. The wreck lies on its starboard side with the bow, crowsnest, and fantail and stern to the North. The propellers are a must-see and the crowsnest stretches away from the wreck and sits in the sand. The main superstructure has plenty of openings however the swim-throughs are generally vertical on this wreck.

Sunk in 1987 and provided with plenty of nutrients from the gulfstream this wreck is covered in colorful corals. Divers can follow the mast to the crowsnest. Goliath Groupers, Bull Sharks and schools of Barracudas are often spotted here.

This dive is recommended for Advanced divers with deep diving experience. Depth is 110 to 130 feet and currents can be very strong.
