Sunset Reef description

Sunset Reef basic informations

A popular shore dive directly off Sunset House Resort. It's only a 200 foot swim from the hotel's pier and the reef profile slopes gradually from 17 feet - 55 feet. The reef is loaded with hard corals, small sponges, seawhips and other lovely gorgonians.

Featured dive site briefing

There are all types of tropical fish including friendly Nassau and black groupers, yellowtail snappers, sergeant majors, moray eels and puffer fish. Farther out from the coral slop lies the LCM David Nicholson, a World War II vintage steel-hulled landing craft. New to this site is Amphitrite which is actually a 9 foot tall bronze mermaid created by Simon Morris of Canada and put underwater at Sunset House in their continuing effort to give the reef some damage relief. Today she sits in 55 FSW and keeps an ever present watch over the reef.
