Lots of fish but not much else...There are to many people and crowded...Do not understand why as there is nothing there except fish swimming under an old lighthouse

We love to stop here and see the fish. There is always something to look at. We have felt like we were in a cloud of fish at times - all around you as you swim. We have seen nurse sharks hanging out here too. Fun for everyone.

Alligator Reef is not a beautiful as Sombrero or Looe in terms of coral but we did see plenty of barracuda, grouper and parrot fish in the stunningly beautiful azure waters.

This appears to be a popular destination for snorkeling groups. Good barracuda fishing on the reef around the light house.
