Overview
More
Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary is one of the largest near shore "live-bottom" reefs of the southeastern United States. Sandstone outcroppings and ledges up to ten feet in height separate the sandy, flat-bottomed troughs in a reef that combines temperate and tropical qualities. The rocky platform, some 60 to 70 feet below the Atlantic Ocean's surface, is wreathed in a carpet of attached organisms and is known as a "live bottom habitat." This flourishing ecosystem provides not only vertical relief, but also a solid base for the abundant invertebrates to attach to and grow upon. Grouper, black sea bass, mackerel, angelfish, and a host of other fish are attracted by the reef. Following close behind the schools of fish are the many sport fishing and more-experienced SCUBA diving enthusiasts who have made Gray's Reef a popular recreation area along the Georgia coast. The Sanctuary is located 16 miles east of Sapelo Island, Ga. between Savannah and Brunswick, Ga.
