The two largest artificial reefs in the world are both located in Florida and both made from retired, purposefully sunk naval ships.
The worlds largest artificial reef is located off the coast of Pensicola, Florida and was created by the purposeful sinking of the USS Oriskany, which was a naval aircraft carrier that was decommissioned in 1976.
The second largest artificial reef was created in 2009 from the USNS General Harry Taylor which was put out of service in 1983. This vessel was a transport vessel, so it was not as large as an aircraft carrier but still good sized.
