Adolphus Busch (Wreck)

The Adolphus Busch wreck was cleaned and purposefully sunk as an artificial reef in 1998 off the coast of the Lower Keys of Florida. Originally named the M/V London, the 210-foot coastal freighter sits at approximately 120ft (40m) with the deck at about 100ft (33m). Current and visibility can vary.

Seasonal pelagics range from several shark species to tarpon and permit. Large schools of snapper and grunts are usually present along with large black and Goliath grouper.
