Check out our dive map for some of the most popular dive sites! Historic wrecks are scattered throughout the region, and include the 185-foot Black Bart, the 441-foot World War II Liberty Ship, and the 465-foot Empire Mica. Because of these and so many other artificial reefs in the area, Skin Diver Magazine dubbed Panama City Beach the "Wreck Diving Capital of the South."
In addition to sunken ships, new artificial reefs are continuously being added to promote sea life. These reefs include a hovercraft, fighter jets, fifteen 160-foot long and 35-foot high bridge spans, ten barges, specifically designed artificial reefs and others.
