The Orion was sunk as a part of the artificial reef program in 1981. It is a steel hulled tug boat.
The wheel house broke off during hurricane Andrew and lies off to one side. It is often passed over for the larger ships in Key Biscayne, but it is a well established and a very nice for a shorter second dive.

Great dive - Of all the dives around Miami this is one of my favorites due to the abundance of marine life.
