Snapper Reef

This is a wonderful shallow dive in the Palm Beach area, averaging about 22 feet. The configuration of the site is formed by three round holes or bowls that dominate the area. You will know you are in the right place when you find the lush growth of soft corals that line the holes with decoration. During the winter months, the area attracts large schools of snapper, hence the name.

The area is sandy, for the most part, except for the circular formations. A ledge averaging about two to four feet in height surrounds the outer edge of the holes and is echoed by an inner ledge about ten to fifteen yards away whose profile is roughly half the height of the outer ledge, except for the circular formations.

The northernmost hole houses a small cavern. Although divers cannot swim through it, make a point of sticking your head in to take a look around, as you may just find a nurse shark sleeping under the ledge.
