The Hydro Atlantic was a 320 foot dredge ship which sank, due to a storm, in 1987 off Boca Raton, FL. The ship still possesses its mast and cranes which are home to many soft corals and tropical fish. A trip forward on the wreck will reveal its crumpled bow, damaged when the ship hit the ocean floor. The Hydro Atlantic is a very popular “tech dive” with her deck at 145 fsw and keel at 172 fsw.
