Belize Queen/Bob Reay Reef

The Belize Queen, commonly known as Bob Reay Reef, consists of a steel 85-foot-long tugboat deployed as an artificial reef on May 30th, 2001. This 110-ton vessel has an intact pilot house and bridge that visitors can explore as swarms of baitfish and reef fish dance around the site. Visitors may have a chance to see a jellyfish or two as well. The vessel lays upright at 112 feet deep but offers 35 feet of relief to explore, as well as nearby artificial reef structures.
