Scuba diving in North Turtle Rocks Reef
North Turtle Rocks Reef is located off the Southwest coast of South Bimini island. It separates the Great Bahama Bank from the Southern Atlantic Ocean. The site got its name not for the abundance of turtles, but for the large brain and star corals that peek out of the water at low tide, and look like the backs of giant turtles. The site is good for snorkelers and novice divers.
