Florida Shipwreck Trail

fst-logo.jpgAlready known for its world-class dives, including the world’s largest artificial reef, the USS Oriskany, the Pensacola Bay Area is now giving avid divers several other reasons for exploring the waterways of America’s first European settlement. As part of the brand-new Florida Panhandle Shipwreck Trail, developed by the Florida Department of State’s Underwater Archaeology Team, the Pensacola Bay Area is home to five of the dive trail’s 12 offshore shipwreck destinations along Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast.

“This new underwater trail represents our latest effort to showcase a portion of Florida’s vast collection of shipwrecks,” said Florida’s Secretary of State, Ken Detzner. “Each location along the Florida Panhandle Shipwreck Trail offers an adventurous opportunity for heritage, recreational and ecological tourism.”

The Florida Panhandle Shipwreck Trail consists of 12 unique and historic shipwrecks, all of which are protected by law and many of which were sunk as artificial reefs and have become popular fishing and diving destinations off the shores of Pensacola, Destin, Panama City and Port St. Joe. They are located in varying depths of water and are home to a wide array of marine life.
