Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary is one of the most popular spots off the Georgia coast for recreational diving. With its amazing underwater park, the reef is teeming with marine life providing nurseries for juveniles and home to larger fish such as Atlantic goliath grouper and southern stingrays. It is also part of the North Atlantic right whale's calving ground.

Loggerhead turtles are frequently seen resting and foraging where it is believed scientists have identified more than 200 fish species. These reefs are packed with soft corals and sponges adding colour to this surprisingly tropical destination. For lucky divers, both bottlenose and spotted dolphin are seen in the sanctuary so keep an eye out for these playful creatures when diving in Georgia.
