Ken Vitale (divesite)
The ship was renamed the Ken Vitale, in memory of a local dive instructor who suffered a Heart Attack diving with students off Pompano Beach in November 1998. The wreck rests upright and is located amongst a cluster of several other vessels, including the tug Jay Scutti and the freighter Merci Jesus.
