The Bimini Barge sunk in the late 1980s during a hurricane. The 120-foot vessel sits upright on a sandy bottom just on the edge of the continental shelf. The sandy bottom is about 100 feet and the top of the barge can be reached at 65 feet.
The barge is completely overgrown with corals and sponges making it a beautiful artificial reef. Huge grouper, jack, barracuda and sharks have been spotted swimming through the hull. Divers can penetrate the wreck and swim among the big fish, but beware of fire coral. Passageways are narrow.
Visibility is usually fantastic and marine life is abundant. There can be an extremely strong current.
