Teeming with a rich and diverse population of sea life, the underwater sanctuary of Smith's Reef caters for all snorkeling abilities. Encounter the reef from the north, east, or west access points, with deeper water in the west to central zones boasting the most impressive reef. Across several coral heads, discover large shoals of colorful fish, majestic stingrays, stalk eyed lobsters, and everyone’s favourite--sea turtles, playing in and around the reef. The eastern side of the reef is most popular with beginners and children, due to its close proximity to the beach and its calm, shallower waters.

  • A decent place to snorkel around and see a variety of fish and coral. While not as colorful as other reefs in the Caribbean it is one of the bigger ones on Provo. We did see a few sea turtles and Manta ray while out. When at the point with the rocks and walk out and explore around as there are various sections of the reef distributed in the area.
  • Wow, this coral reef was amazing. Watch out for boats. We saw many many different marine species including green sea turtle, spotted eagle ray, nursery shark, etc) and most of all its free.
