    Wye Reef Print E-mail

     This colorful reef is one of the two border reefs of Buck Island Cove. Named for the HMS Wye, (which sank here during the 1867 Hurricane that sank the HMS Rhone), the reef is a favorite hang-out for schooling fish, nurse sharks and sea turtles.  Starting as a shallow dive in about 35 feet of water, you can explore the coral encrusted boulders that lead down to the active coral reef that ends in about 70 feet.  At that point, the reef meets the open sand, where sting rays and conch can be found waiting patiently for your arrival.  An easy turn to the right or the left along the edge will make for a slow, easy dive until it is time to return back to the boat.   Because Wye Reef is so diverse in composition, it can be done as a shallow or deep dive. A great chance to try out that new computer or start that Multilevel Specialty!
