Diving in Gray's Reef
    National Marine Sanctuary

The sanctuary itself is only accessible by boat. The sanctuary does not run boat tours, fishing trips or dive trips. However, many independent boat operators run fishing trips and dive trips to Gray's Reef.

We make available an alphabetical listing of charter operators and dive clubs that offer trips to Gray's Reef and other coastal locations.

Grays' Reef National Marine Sanctuary does not endorse or promote individual businesses or clubs, but provides this list as a service to the community. We also recommend checking the yellow pages and online for updates.
