Camel Rock was named for its resemblance to a camel swimming through the ocean.
This relatively flat reef area is part of a much larger area around Camel Rock that was used as a dumping ground after World War II. There are thousands of pounds of ordnance littering the bottom, from .30 caliber machine-gun bullets to 500lb bombs . Divers have to look carefully, as over 50 years of coral growth has over some of the bombs .
The dive starts with an upper reef area at about 40 feet which gradually slopes down to a flat sandy bottom at 130 feet.
Small anemones dot the reef, and a wide variety of fish and coral inhabit the area.
