 Snappers Ledge

Dive Type:
Reef Dive
Typical Depth Range: 25 to 30 feet
Expertise Required: Novice

Snappers Ledge is a shallow patch reef located a short distance south/west of Pickles Reef.  It is unmarked and has no moorings, thus requiring visitors to anchor their boats in the sand around the edges of the reef. With  a depth of only 25' to 30' it is an excellent dive for all experience levels or as a second dive following a deeper dive.

A ledge runs along the west side of the reef that is home to a near flawless 4'  brain coral and a stand of Elkhorn coral.  However, the real attraction and what the reef is best know for is the extremely large schools of Yellowtail Snapper, Lane Snapper and Yellow Goatfish that "hang" along this ledge.
