Emerald Reef
One of the best reef sites that not many know about. Emerald reef is probably Miami’s largest natural reef and has many large rocks for interesting critters to hide out in. Also a popular spot for lobsters, especially early in the season. We have seen almost anything that is found in the Atlantic on this reef at one time or another. Great close up photography with some macro opportunities. Remember, our reefs are fragile, be careful to only drop an anchor in sand up current from any reef.
