ATLANTIC OCEAN 38°40.600’N 74°43.300’W – DNREC’s artificial reef program within the Division of Fish & Wildlife today enhanced the state’s renowned artificial reef system by sinking a retired cruise ship on Delaware’s Redbird Inshore Artificial Reef Site #11 located 16.5 nautical miles off Indian River Inlet. The newly-reefed ship, which cruised the Chesapeake Bay and coastal waters for more than 15 years, will provide angling opportunities and exciting dive trip possibilities on the Redbird Reef.
