 Busch wreck – The 210-foot Adolphus Busch Sr., a former cargo freighter intentionally sunk in 1998 has the large fish life you’re looking for. The cargo holes and wheel house have plenty of natural light to navigate and provides short swim through’s.

 Vandenburg - Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg, a former military troop transport and former missile-tracking ship was chosen from about 400 decommissioned military ships rusting away in “Ghost Fleets” across the country. Gross Tonnage (Volume): 17,120 tons. Length: 524 feet 10 inches • Beam: 71.5 feet • Draft: 24 feet. Height after sinking: 100 feet from keel to the highest point. Stacks, masts and antennas were trimmed to allow 40-45 feet of clearance from the surface. With a vessel this large, there’s plenty to look at. Why worry about tracking your allowed bottom time, let your guide take care of it for you and get you back to the boat safely.
