Turtle Rocks is one of the most popular dive sites in Bimini. Don’t expect to see turtles here; this reef earned the name Turtle rocks for the large brain corals that peek out of the water at low tide. The corals look like the backs of giant sleeping turtles.

This is a relaxing and easy dive spot. There is seldom much of a current and the dense coral formations attract hundreds of tropical fish. Angelfish, file fish, parrotfish, spotted drums, and yellowhead jawfish are some of the fish often seen on Turtle Rocks. Lobsters make their homes on this reef too.

At the South end of this the reef the depth is 30-35 feet. There are three areas known as North, Middle, and South Turtle Rocks. The North end of the reef is shallower with depths averaging 15 feet.
