The site of a civil war era wreck. This reef now hosts the concrete cylinders which once were dry cement in barrels being shipped by barge. The large number of them in this barrel shapped form gave rise to the name Pickle Barrel Reef, which is now generally called just Pickles reef. A really great site for snorkelers and divers, depths range from 6 to 30 feet. Large patches of sea fans dot the underwater landscape. This is a great site for photographers who want to catch juvenile fish out and about, or some of the smaller creatures such as nudibranchs.
