Star Gazer Reef

Star Gazer is an underwater sculpture set on crystal white sand near the main reef.  It’s also an artificial reef,  since some coral has managed to latch on and grow.  There’s a nice Jew Fish (oh, sorry, Goliath Grouper), some very large Angel Fish, and lots of Mangroves.  Star Gazer is kind of surreal and surprising, since it’s obviously some sort of scupture with meaning.  It’s got something to do with stars and navigation, and I hear you can get a map to it, which shows certain elements you can hunt for, like a game.

Even without the chart, Star Gazer reef is fun to snorkel or dive.  It’s maybe 20 feet deep and clearly outlined against the white sand so even from the surface you can see the massive table-like steel shapes.  Look  for the  newest resident, the Goliath Grouper.  He’s really shy, so you can’t get too close to him.  He hasn’t figured out yet that Star Gazer isn’t very good cover for a huge monster like himself!
