Have you ever been spearfishing around oil platforms? On the surface, offshore oil rigs are a complete eyesore, but underwater they can be an aquatic paradise for sea creatures. Stretching hundreds of feet from the ocean floor and towering far above the surface—some reaching heights as tall as the Empire State Building—these metal platforms used for oil drilling have taken on a surprisingly different purpose over the years: serving as manmade reefs for coral, sponges, algae, red snapper, jacks, angel fish, barracuda and other marine species. If you ever find yourself around the Florida Keys, try and book a trip with Captain Aaron Young and he will make sure to take you to some of the hottest diving spots around.
