Destin officials sink 180-foot ship to create artificial reef

The retired research vessel MANTA plunged to the floor of the Gulf of Mexico Sunday morning. The 180-foot-long ship was rusting in a shipyard until Destin officials acquired it for use as an artificial reef. We try and take advantage of this and procure these for basically the price of scrap and use them, clean them up and deploy them as artificial reefs,” Okaloosa County Tourism Development Department Coastal Resource Manager Alex Fogg said. “This really is an awesome opportunity for the destination.”
