Brass Wreck or Anchor Wreck got its name because of the thousands of brass pins sticking out of its iron ribs and because of the many brass artefacts that have been collected in the years since its discovery. We don't know the exact history of this 250 foot long wooden schooner; all we do know is that she probably had four masts and was built in the 19th century.
Its ribs sticking out of the sand are a great sight welcoming any diver to take a closer look. Other sights at this nice dive site are its intact wooden deck, two large anchors, a small windlass and some ballast rubble. There is a lot of marine live living in and around the wreck feeding of its coral. Crabs, bristle worms, flounders and octopus have made the wreck its home. Snappers, amber jacks and barracuda can be found in the current keeping an eye at everything that moves. At only fifteen miles south east of Pensacola Pass she is one of the top wreck dives in the area which should be dived by any diver.
