The Fire Islander Shipwreck  New York and New Jersey's (Wreck Valley)
Historical and current New York and New Jersey Shipwreck Information and images for scuba divers and fisherman.

On May 8, 1991 the 65foot wood hulled ferry FIRE ISLANDER was sunk as a artificial reef at the Jones Beach reef site. The FIRE ISLANDER was owned by Fire Island Ferries, Inc and was used in the Great South Bay. The vessel was donated to be sunk as a reef. Her superstructure and all possible flotation debris and pollutants were removed. The Ferries hull was also filled with concrete for ballast. The ferry now sits in 67 feet of water. I have not had a chance to dive her yet but she should prove to be a nice addition to Wreck Valley.
