This artificial reef site "AR315" is located 3.5 nautical miles from Beaufort Inlet, North Carolina. The 134 metre Liberty ship, Theodore Parker, was sunk in June 1974 to create an artificial reef habitat. From 1974 to 2003 additional structures and debris were placed on the seafloor to continue developing the artificial reef site. Divers and recreational fishermen frequent the AR315 site for its wide variety of marine life and proximity to the shoreline.
