Gulfstream Pipeline fishing map with side-scan imagery.
Now includes mitigation sites and valve boxes!
“This is my go-to dive site if I am wanting to not only maximize the number of dives I can do in a day with the least amount of fuel burned, but also access just about every offshore reef fish species that the Gulf has to offer.” Alex Fogg, Marine Resource Coordinator and Lionfish slayer extraordinaire.
You asked and we scanned, from seven miles out of Tampa to south of Pensacola.
You’ll see the rock piles – sometimes on top, sometimes to the sides – used to stabilize the pipeline, note where the pipeline goes underground, spot schools of bait, and laugh at our curving path when we avoided boats and fought with the autopilot.
We have also included coordinates for the valve boxes and the boulder field and artificial reef mitigation sites. However, imagery for the mitigation sites is not included.
Remember that weather window around Valentine’s day? That’s how fresh this data is. And don’t be surprised if our chart doesn’t overlay exactly on top of the pipeline marked on your chartplotter. Check it for yourself.
This chart includes several waypoints in the Madison Swanson protected area. Please follow all applicable laws, rules, and regulations.
Depths on this preview chart may be displayed in fathoms (6 feet), meters, or feet depending on your zoom level.
