Radio Tower Pyramids
Fast FactsAverage Rating: 4.4Average Depth: 40 ft.Max Depth: 50 ft.Features: 13
Ben Mastkoff, Director of the Artifical Reef program for the Department of Environmental Resources Management (DERM), designed the pyramids from sections of radio towers once used by Radio Mambi. The nineteen steel and concrete radio towers were sunk in 1988. Ben�s goal was to attract marine life and reef formation quickly and he succeeded in creating a popular dive spot off of Miami Beach. Often this site is called Ben�s Antenna Reef.
The pyramids rest in 50 feet of water and each rises about 20 feet from the bottom. Several dive charters include this spot in a �Wreck Trek� because several other wrecks (Miss Patricia/Miss Karline) and artificial reefs (Rock Pile) are nearby. Numerous fish inhabit the pyramids both day and night.
