South Florida Wreck Dive Sites + Locations

Broward County has created over 115 artificial reefs, including wrecks since 1982. Palm Beach County has sunk over 150 reefs since the start of their reef program in 1987. These reefs are made from a variety of materials including ships, barges, oil rigs, concrete culverts, engineered concrete and other environmentally-friendly materials. Many of these artificial reefs use materials that mimic natural reef systems such as limestone. From 10 feet to over 200 feet, these materials are placed in the ocean where marine creatures quickly make them home.

For those who have never completed a wreck dive — you’re missing out! Every time you penetrate a wreck, you’re swimming through history.

  1. Your list of beach dive sites is amazing! I can’t wait to see THIS page grow, too!!

  2. Any info on the SS Copenhagen wreck in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea? A guy at Diver’s Direct told me it was worth checking out.

    • Hi Tony,
      Hope all is well. The SS Copenhagen is a great spot to dive. TONS of life. We currently don’t have anything on this wreck. We haven’t dived it in years and like to dive the site THEN do the write-up. The Copenhagen needs to be added.

    • If you’re interested in diving wrecks, this is not the one for you. We take open water students to this particular site due to its depth. There is also no entry point to the Copenhagen itself. No means of penetrating it. Depth is between 20 – 30 ft. You can find pieces here or there. Pending on your experience, I’d recommend the lady luck or Tracey.

  3. Info here is thourgh, detailed, VERY first-time user friendly. This is my starting point(s) for ALL of my Florida diving. I enjoyed the vids/pix & hope to contribute soon. I appreciate all the time & effort it takes to maintain this site.
