Wrecks of South Florida

seaemp.jpg
Sea Emperor
A 171' barge rests upside down in 72ft of water.  The east side is littered with 1,600 tons of culvert drainage pipes that were on top of the barge that fell off during sinking when it flipped over. These attract thousands of fish as well as larger inhabitants that provide big thrills. Currently, divers can expect to see stingrays, green moray eels, nurse sharks and goliath grouper on the wreck. This is a photographer's paradise!

Ancient Mariner
A 165' long Coast Guard Cutter with a 25' beam sits in 70ft of water. The Ancient Mariner is covered with sea life. Due to the close proximity to the reef, fish move back and forth between the two. A large Goliath Grouper guards the wreckage.
