Diving this reef with Quiescence and Chesapeake Bay Dive let's you know there are so many hand picked spots where the "cattle boats" don't go. Check either dive charter and see why this reef is a million dives waiting to happen.

The reef was very beautiful and abundant with underwater life. We dove this reef 3 different times while we were there and each one was spectacular.
