This is a smaller snorkel site compared to Smith's reef but there's still a lot to see! We even saw a turtle! The main reef area is roped off so you can only swim around it. However, I still got to see a lot of different types of fish and reefs! We snorkeled here 3 days in a row! (We... More

Was there a few days ago, it was a bit windy but since is right off the beach, it is an easy location. Was very disappointed as there was a few fish. YES i meant a FEW fish. I was hoping to see some nice exotic fish, but nothing more then a few colorful fish.

Snorkeled Bight reef around 11:00. It was rather windy and the water churned up so visibility was not the greatest. Recommend to enter on your left (looking toward ocean) and start where the sea grass is. We saw about 6 turtles eating the grass and surfacing for air. Then work your way around the roped off area clockwise. Recommend this... More

We visited Bight Reef in 2012 and it was INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL. Four years later in 2016...something is wrong. The reef looks sick. The color was pale and there weren't nearly as many fish as our previous visit. So disappointing. I hope the reef is able to repair itself. So sad.

We have been snorkeling twice at the Bight Reef. It is less windy than the Smith Reef since it is more protected. There is an area of recovery for the corals marked by orange boies. This area you cannot snorkel in it, but you can do it around it. That is quite good because this recovering reef attracts many fishes.... More

The corals and fish are pretty much as good as the ones you can see when you go on the boat tour - barracudas, giant lobsters and rays are pretty much guaranteed, turtles are a bit rare. It's easy to get to and, depending on the weather conditions can be a very easy swim. But sometimes the currants and tides... More

You cannot believe the fish diversity you will find at this reef just next to the shore. I am a scuba diver and I was really impressed

Small reef areas between grassy sand. Average reef fish no turtles or large fish during an hour and a half swim. Caymans were far superior for fish sightings but water was clear and warm so a great day!

It is easy to get to, just in front of Coral Garden. There was a rope that surround the reef and we were to snorkel around it and not in it. More to see further away. We saw turtle and many colorful fishes.
