2. U.S.N.S. GENERAL HOYT S. VANDENBERG, KEY WEST, FLORIDA
The USNS General Hoyt S. Vandenberg was sunk at Key West, Florida, in 2009 to relieve recreational dive and fishing pressure from surrounding natural coral reefs. Costing approximately $8.6 million, the project has created an artificial reef that has been cleaned of hazards.
This shipwreck dive offers a unique experience with the chance to swim through satellite dishes and free fall through elevator shafts. There is also a good variety of marine life, particularly as you venture deeper into the wreck.
