navigate to a submerged reef located just offshore by navigating on
a 180-degree course for about 150
yards. Once on the reef, divers can hunt for
lobsters, spear fish, or even
take photographs of the wide variety of local marine life.
This marine life includes starfish, anemones, crabs, fluke,
fish, and even sea urchins.
There is a
running current, so dives should be planned for slack tide. Also,
because of the seasonal boat traffic and fishermen sporting this
site, divers should be well
practiced in underwater navigation. This skill will allow divers
visit the reef and return to shore without ever coming to the
surface, therefore eliminating most of
the danger from passing boats. The trusty dive flag also
will play an important role in
safely enjoying the undersea environment located at the
Manhattan Beach Reef.
