    This is a popular site for spear fishermen, particularly near the 63-foot tug Reliance, �Culvert Reef� and �Thunderdome.� The reef area consists of over one dozen shipwrecks including a 120-foot barge and an upside-down barge. Depths are generally around 65 feet on these wrecks although some have profiles that can be reached at less depth. The GPS given are for Reliance.

    For decades fisherman have come to this spot to fish for 20-pound grouper, as well as snapper, cobia, amberjack, and sheepshead. There are many smaller reefs in this location, which draw those attracted to shelling along with tropical fish watchers.

    The reef is located 8.4 nautical mile from the Mayport jetties and is a great location for seeing several different types of vessels and large populations of sea life.
