Best off shore snorkeling we have found on Provo! Up close and personal!

There is an area of reef surrounding by buoys off the beach in front of Coral Gardens and Somewhere restaurant (EAT HERE!) Even after taking a snorkeling tour, we still seen more... read more

Even after taking a snorkeling tour, we still seen more types of fish here, it was beautiful! As another said, the reef is having a bit of trouble outside of the protected area surrounded by buoys it seems... More

The reef looked like it was having trouble. The coral was not very colorful for the most part. I did see some sea turtles and a barracuda but no schools of fish. I hope the reef will remain viable.

The reef was just down from our hotel, so it was super convenient to get to for us. We saw a lot of different fish and even a small reef shark one day! But our favorites, were the sea turtles. Because the water isn't too deep, you are really close and can get a great view of everything. There was... More

Nice reef, actually saw more fish than on the outer reef with tour group. Saw numerous colorful fish and than saw them scatter quickly. Ok, who is coming by. 5 foot Barracuda but he was just minding his own business, we have seen these before. What we hadn't seen before was the 5 foot reef shark that swam past my... More

It was a little tricky to find, but once we found it, the coral was really cool. We also saw a couple rays swimming in the sea grass. The water was very calm and comfortable. Also salty enough that you don't need a flotation for snorkeling.

A couple of trips to Bight Reef were the highlight of our recent trip. The ocean was choppy and making waves and some red flags were out, so we thought we would not be able to snorkel, but about 15 minutes down from our hotel we ran into a family of snorkelers. We asked, "Do you go out? Was it... More

At a suggestion by another tourist we met during our stay, we went to Bight Park (where they do the Fish Fry) and snorkeled right off the beach - we were amazed how fabulous it was and easy to access - we saw an array of tropical fish, various colourful coral, turtles and eagle rays - we wish we had...

We started snorkeling in Grace Bay in the swimming areas and saw a few fish. The second trip we took our bikes down to Bight Settlement to experience the Bight Coral Reef. The waves weren't too large and the sea wasn't overly rough. Great to be able to go right out from the beach. A smaller reef and not as... More

We were so excited to see this reef but, unfortunately, the week we were there, there was a very strong current and it was a little too rough for my son. The reef is very convenient right off of the beach. Hoping we can go again..

Good opportunity to see lots of different sea creatures without too much effort, we don't all want to spend all day out on a dive boat and this gives the casual thrill seeker the chance to observe turtles and numerous strange fish.
