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.
