Fast Facts

Average Depth: 15 ft.
Max Depth: 25 ft.

    As you may have guessed, this reef gets its name from its curved horseshoe-like formation. It ranges in depth from 15 to 25 feet, with the sharpest profile on the shoreward side. There are several sandy ledges decorated with soft coral and sponges. There is also a series of coral heads located on the northwest side. Turtles find the ledges as safe havens for napping, and are abundant in this reef. These turtles are protected and should not be touched. French, bluestripped, and smallmouth grunts are a common sight as well as snapper. Hawksbill and loggerheads are often seen in the summer time. Horseshoe is an ideal spot for new divers.
