10/16/21 Captain Dan



The Captain Dan is a 175' long Coast Guard Tender. The bow points south and the ship is standing at attention upright at 110'. The top of the wheelhouse is around 80'. The Dan is covered up with a variety of wildlife. You never know what you will see here, there has been 2 whale shark sightings here, a day and a year apart. Large barracuda, grouper, amberjack, and other schools of fish make this wreck their home.

The Hollyhock, a US Coast Guard Tender, later named the Captain Dan was sunk in February 1990 as part of the Rodeo Reef. After being decommissioned by the Coast Guard, the Hollyhock was purchased by a missionary. Mechanical problems stranded the vessel and she was towed to the Miami River where she was sold to the Florida Boating Improvement Program to become an artificial reef. The Hollyhock was renamed Captain Dan in memory of Dan Garnsey, a charter fishing local pioneer.
