We rented our own boat and made the quick trip out to this reef. Nice mooring balls to tie up to so no need to anchor. It was rough, about 5 to 6 foot seas. Snorkling with the chop wasnt an issue, but the visibility was only about 10 feet or so. We are still glad we did it. Some... More

This was a lovely dive spot, full of life. Did not get to see turtles or sharks or even barracuda, but we did see lots of other reef fish.

We took a trip out on our neighbor's 24 foot Dusky, and this was one place that I had never seen before. The water is crystal clear ,and you can see everything right from the surface. The reason why they don't have many mooring spots is because they don't want people dropping anchors in the reef. If You want to... More

Not enough buoys and the day we were there was rough so the boat was drifting too close to other boats. For some reason the big charter sailboats think they own the reef. I watch one tell a boater to move since he had paying customers. Some of the buoys are marked for large vessels which makes it hard to... More

This reef is ok! There aren't many moorings. I always wondered why they don't have many. Now I know why because there isn't to much to see. Only go if you have the time.

Pretty reef area great for snorkling due to its shallow depths. It is also great for the diver, lots to see plenty of fish!

Easy to get to and nice shallow reef. There were many schools of fish, some unusual speices I have not regularly seen before, and a huge green moray eel (and another small one) on today's outing.
