There’s no better way to spice up a dive destination than by adding a new wreck. Wrecks attract throngs of marine life and divers, so it’s no surprise that operators in hot spots around the world go to great lengths to acquire, clean and sink interesting ships in their waters. This “science of scuttle” means the landscape of available wrecks is forever growing — there’s always a new sinking on the horizon to keep us excited. From Pensacola to Papua New Guinea, we’ve compiled a guide to some of Scuba Diving’s favorite purpose-sunk-wreck dives — some newly sunk, some longtime classics, but all offer ideas for endless bottom time.
