A common question that people ask at Diver's Destination is "Where is there to dive in Louisiana?" Well, Louisiana is home to some of the best scuba diving in the world. Just a few miles off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico is the home of hundreds of oilfield platforms. These huge vertical structures extend from the bottom of the sea floor to the surface and beyond. These structures are literally gardens of some of the finest artificial reefs in the world, all teaming with an abundance of life. These reefs are home to hundreds of species of fish from entertaining Blennies that live in the barnacles to the larger fish like Amber Jack, Snapper, Grouper, Ling, Barracuda and more. Add in the various crustaceans and some coral, and if you haven’t seen it, you will be completely amazed. Not only is there a large community of recreational divers, but Louisiana is home to the largest population of commercial divers in the country, if not the world. This is a direct result of the oil and gas industry here in Louisiana. Louisiana is a hidden treasure for divers and each platform is a complete eco system filled with marine life and the hidden beauty that will leave divers in awe and wanting to return.
