In 1974, three 300-foot long coal barges were sunk to form an artificial reef. The site makes an excellent area for safe, easy diving as the wrecks lie end-to-end on the white sand bottom. The tops of the barges lie 15 feet under the surface while depths to the sand are about 50 feet.
The site is not only an excellent place to spot a vast amount of marine life, but also a great spot for shell collecting as the surrounding sand is covered with large sand dollars and shells. Loggerhead turtles have been known to frequent the area during the summer. Visibility in the area ranges from 30 to 40 feet.
