Pete’s Reef is an easy dive characterized by reef flats rising out of sand pits.
There are several sand channels flanked by interesting short walls which are covered with marine life. Several large anemones dot the reef and are home to brightly-colored clownfish. Look carefully and you will see popcorn shrimp which also make their homes in anemones.
The reef flats support many small invertebrates, especially blue and yellow striped nudibranchs and colorful Pincushion Stars.
Check the crevices for lionfish and keep an eye out for clams. Don’t forget to look for flatfish and lizard fish as you pass over the sandy bottom.
This makes a great night dive, with a good chance of finding lobsters and crabs.
