Miami Area Dive Sites
The Dive Charter Operator I recommend to dive these wreck sites is: RJ Diving Ventures
The Steane D'Auray is often referred to as the "St. Ann" and located in the southern end of the RJ Diving Ventures Artificial Reef Site
The vessel is a 110 foot North Atlantic trawler, sunk in only 68 feet of water. It has over 28 feet of relief and is basically still intact. There is still a picturesque air vent on the port side, the perfect backdrop for the underwater photographer. Some of the wreck has been torn apart and scattered across the bottom in the sand after Hurricane Andrew in August of 1992.
The St. Anne was sunk on March 28, 1986 and has a tremendous amount of growth. The rich nutrients of the Gulfstream have brough an abundance of life to her structure. Brilliant soft corals undulate in the current while the dark passageways beckon you to investigate her inner structure.
The St. Anne sits in the sand near a pretty little patch reef which is easily visited on the same dive.
