The name comes from the shape of the reef as viewed from above. It has been a navigation hazard since the waters surrounding it have had vessels on it. Its hazard to shipping is evidenced by the numerous wrecks that lie on this reef as well as the ones that struck here and sank in deeper waters.

Besides the City of Washington and the Tonnawonda wrecks, the Train Car wreck is also here. Reatively shallow water from 6 to 60 feet surround the now lighted navigation aid tower. Beautiful coral heads rising off the ocean floor, some more than 15 feet high, and hundreds of other species of both soft and hard corals, vertebrates and invertebrates inhabit this popular dive site.
