The Copenhagen anchor has a storied past. Located near Pompano Beach Florida, the anchor is from the steamship Copenhagen, which crashed onto the reef on its way to Cuba in May of 1900. After efforts to save the ship lasted several days, the crew deployed a large anchor to help free it to no avail. The shipwreck stayed visible for over 40 years until navy fighters in the area used it for target practice prior to WWII and it landed in its final resting place in approximately 20’ of water. The anchor is covered in colorful corals and is a favorite of snorkelers and divers alike.
