This reef is a small maze of large limestone ledges that come up to 5 feet below the water surface, making it an excellent dive site for beginners.

This is a good reef, but the star is the Christ of the Abyss statue. This is a fairly deep reef for snorkeling and quite crowded.

The tropical fish and coral reef are stunning! There is a great diversity and the reef is fairly shallow here so you really have a great view as a snorkeler.

The viz at this site was good and the reefs were fairly shallow. Nice easy dive site with good visibility. We did the North Dry Rocks after the Speigel Grove and it was a nice way to finish the day.

Pennekamp has protected waters so fish really thrives there. Saw monster lobsters too. We really love this place. It is worth putting up with the crowds.
