Trip Details & Info
Spearfishing & Scuba Diving History
Alabama has the largest artificial reef program in the United States. The natural offshore bottom of Alabama is a flat sandy bottom. When a vertical reef is created on the bottom, fish such as snappers or groupers become attracted. As corals and sponges cover the artificial reef material, small aquatic animals will take up residence. Soon a cycle will be created and a complete reef food web will be in place.
Explore The Offshore Bottoms of Alabama
Alabama’s artificial reef program started in 1953. Orange Beach Charter Boat Association placed 250 car bodies off Baldwin County, Alabama. This became to be very successful in the years since. The State/Federal cooperation sunk several “ghost-fleeted” liberty ships in five locations off Mobile and Baldwin counties in 80 – 93 feet of water.
