Raw, Wild, and Lively!! That is how we describe both the reef and its namesake, our second Captain Robin . This reef is something. Its biggest boast is its many cuts and swim throughs where you can find way too many lobsters and groupers. If you are an underwater hunter or photographer there is only one problem, they are back in cracks that you cant get to...but you can see them.

However, if you are an underwater naturalist, you just can't go wrong here. You can almost always find a cleaning station where a large grouper is being cleaned by Petersen shrimp. Maybe you are into seeing a Bicolor Damselfish chase away fish that are ten times her size. If not that, perhaps you prefer hundreds of brilliant Blue Chromis posing for photos over brain coral that is over 50' in diameter! Whatever your flavor of wonder, you can find it in spades here.

The "reef" is an area near Memory Rock. It is difficult to give accurate depths because of the many cuts and swim-throughs and also because the reef is so large of an area. Basically, the top of the reef is about 35-40' and the bottom can be found from 40-90'. Typical visibility in this area is about 80-100'.

This site is difficult to maintain a mooring on it. There is a high volume of traffic that passes the area due to its proximity to Memory Rock, deep water, and the traffic lanes to the Walkers and Abaco Bahamian Islands. While this does not interfere with or endanger the diving/divers, it would often ruin the mooring (and perhaps someone's propellers).
