Teeming with a rich and diverse population of sea life, the underwater sanctuary of Smith's Reef caters for all snorkeling abilities. Encounter the reef from the north, east, or west access points, with deeper water in the west to central zones boasting the most impressive reef. Across several coral heads, discover large shoals of colorful fish, majestic stingrays, stalk eyed lobsters, and everyone’s favourite--sea turtles, playing in and around the reef. The eastern side of the reef is most popular with beginners and children, due to its close proximity to the beach and its calm, shallower waters.
