She was struck from the US Naval Register in 1973 and on 7 JUNE 1989 the aging submarine was sunk 15 miles off Ocean Beach, Maryland as an artificial reef.

USS BLENNY was surveyed by the M/V Atlantic Surveyor in 2008 as part of NOAA multibeam survey H11992. You can clearly see BLENNY resting on her starboard side in 70 ft of water.
