Sinking the Kraken - VIDEO



The US Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Artificial Reef Program sank a 371-foot cargo vessel, named The Kraken, on January 20, 2017.

The ship was sunk 67 miles off the coast of Galveston to create a new artificial reef.

Over time, this sunken ship will become an artificial reef that attracts fish, coral and other invertebrates as well as divers and anglers. The Kraken’s proximity to the Flower Gardens Marine Sanctuary also makes it a premier dive location in the Gulf of Mexico, according to Texas Parks and Wildlife.

Artificial reefs enhance the marine environment off the coast of Texas by providing additional habitat needed by marine life. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Artificial Reef Program, funded through industry partnerships and grants, creates and enhances this critical marine habitat.
