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.

Watch the video showing the sinking of the Yellow Elder below.
