Divesite:

The vessel was sunk as an artificial reef off Fort Lauderdale, approximately 500 feet south of the tug Mary St. Phillip (Mariner II). Since her scuttling, the Rodeo 25 has been impacted by numerous storms. The wreck lists significantly to starboard with her bow almost over on her side, and the hull forward of her stern superstructure is collapsing. Colorfully decorated with the invasive orange cup coral, the Rodeo 25 typically hosts abundant marine life and offers an enjoyable diving experience.
