ALEXANDER'S WRECK Key West

The Alexander was a 300 foot long destroyer escort. She was purchased by Chet Alexander for $2,000. She was sunk in the Gulf in 1972 as an artificial reef and dive site and is now sitting upright and broken in half in 35 to 40 feet of water. Her stern section lies 150 yards north of her bow. 

According to diver Joel Silverstein, she is almost exposed at low tide, and divers can still see her five inch gun and 40 mm anti-aircraft guns. This wreck is encrusted with coral and marine life and still produces an occasional naval artifact. 
 

Basic shipwreck information and images for this section of this site was taken with permission from the book Florida Shipwrecks by Daniel Berg. You are invited to submit your shipwreck related articles, images and information. As long as the text, photographs, sketches etc are of professional quality we will showcase them. Full credit will be provided and a same page link to your web site can be arranged.
