Five artificial reefs were created in 2018, with a few of them open to divers.

The reefs include the former Royal Bahamas Defense Force cutter Yellow Elder which lies 60 feet/18 meters off New Providence Island, Bahamas to the Twin Capes ferry sunk in 120 feet/37 meters off Cape May, New Jersey to the Stations of the Cross undersea park about 33 feet/10 meters underwater off Trogir, Croatia.

The Yellow Elder is part of the Bahamas Artificial Reef Programme, a scheme that has seen different ships sunk over years to set up artificial reefs around the islands. A total of 30 wrecks have been sunk by Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas, with 20 still part of the programme and flourishing as artificial reefs.
