An Exclusive Diving Spot

Breaking Patches Reef is one of the most exclusive diving sites offering shallow waters teeming with painted parrot fish, pretty angel fish and lion fish. This is one of the best spots for drifting alongside majestic green sea turtles and endangered hawksbill turtles who come in their hordes to the warm and rich waters of Breaking Patches Reef. The bountiful coral is both soft and hard and explorers in the deep can see Staghorn coral, Black Coral Trees and Sea Fans glittering along the sea beds.

Bright and Bountiful Fish

The plate and fan coral is also home to many wonderful and wondrous creatures like bright sea anemones, clownfish and drifting butterflyfish. Spending the afternoon splashing in the shallows, swimming through the overhangs and touching down on the sandy sea floor is the best way of discovering the bounty of Breaking Patches Reef.

Lagoon Like Reefs

Breaking Patches Reef is often referred to as a lagoon like coral reef thanks to its calming shallow waters and protected shelf surroundings. Another fabulous reason as to why you may want to explore the beauty of Breaking Patches Reef is the fact that it is only visited by a limited number of companies ensuring that the waters stay free and open and you don’ swim through the crowds. These calming waters offer crystal clear vision and pristine opportunities for beginners who dare to duck their head beneath the waves. Yet those who are more advanced in the world of diving will find plenty of fun with the fingers and chutes that can be found scattered around the reef.

Swimming with Sea Turtles

After spending the day skimming beneath the soft turquoise waters you can sit on board the boat and watch exotic birds soaring through the skies and diving down to grab a bite to eat. Breaking Patches Reef is the perfect place to dive down and snorkel across the surface and the experience of swimming alongside the gentle giants of the sea turtles is a once in a lifetime experience that is sure to stay with you for many years to come.
