The Pipe Barge is a wreck of a push barge located just inshore of the Atlantic Beach Fish Haven. The Pipe Barge, as the name implies, had been transporting pipe when she sunk.

The Pipe Barge sits in 60 feet of water and remains mostly intact. She sits upright on a sand bottom and her bow section can be entered through an opening on her starboard side. Lobsters inhabit many of the pipes and holes in and around the wreck.
