The Blue Reef has long been a popular dive spot, with leaf and brain corals spread over a large area, as well as purple, orange, and green giant barrel sponges.

Two airplanes, an S-11 and a DC-3, have been sunk intentionally as an artificial reef. After hurricane Lenny in 1999 the DC-3 was dragged to 80 feet of water and broken into two big pieces where penetration of the wreck is still possible.
