USCGC Mohawk Dive date 8-17-2014 5 -10 knots variable breeze, seas light chop to smooth, no current, vis 40ft. temp at depth 84F. max depth 87ft - double dip with 85mins total dive time

The Mohawk is a 165’ US Coast Guard Cutter sitting upright in 90’.

The USS Mohawk CGC was built in 1934 for the Coast Guard. The ship is 165 feet in length. The ship served in World War II and was involved in 14 attacks against Nazi Submarines on the Atlantic Ocean. She and her crew also saved many lives from the icy waters. The Mohawk is the last remaining ship of her kind and is the Memorial Ship of the “Battle of the Atlantic.”

With a double dip on the wreck you can do all the easy swim throughs and look around the deck on the 1st dive. On the 2nd dive you can spend most of time exploring inside including the engine room. There are a lot of other areas like toilet rooms ect that are all easily accessible. They did a good job opening the wreck up for safe diving even with poor vis. Fish life on the wreck was amazing. The Goliath aggregation was on and it was the 1st time I had a swim through of Goliath Grouper. The pictures I will post were taken by another diver during our dive.

I will dive the Mohawk again. So if you are interested contact hawkcharters.com/ and let me know.

I have posted all the wrecks I have done. The Mohawk is scheduled for 8-17 so I added it.
Couldn’t find a photo of Joes tug above water. Gotta run, heading for Gasparilla Isl for the
night to be closer to my ride to the Mohawk.

Happy diving...

Live in SW Florida 3hrs from Key Largo :) I am retired and love to dive the wrecks in the Florida Keys. I have completed the wreck trek fla-keys.com/diving/wrecktrek/ with most of them a few times. I have done the Oriskany off the Florida panhandle and would like to get back up that way to dive more on there wreck trec floridapanhandledivetrail.com/
