Jeep Reef — I know, it’s not really a jeep, but it’s cool

It’s been about four years since I last scuba’d in the Caribbean.   Getting my picture next to “Jeep Reef” in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park would be a great next dive.  Note to self:  Book trip to Bahamas …. leave jeep at home.

According to this website, The Jeep Reef  “is one of the prettiest reefs you will ever see. The strong current that sweeps through this cut keeps the reef ‘s corals very healthy. This dive can only be done at slack tide because of the strong currents . It is in the middle of the Exumas Land & Sea Park, so you will find a very healthy population of fish. This dive site gets its name from a coral encrusted jeep that sits near the mooring.”

    Dave,
    This post reminds me of Million Dollar Point and SS President Coolidge in the South Pacific. An online search will turn up tons of pics. Great to check out if you never have. The only place I can think of that you can find an original WW2 jeep in an original crate.

    Never heard of either place. I’ll have to check those out.

    On a similar note, back in the late 70s there was a movie made out of Australia and shot on an island in the Pacific somewhere about a group of guys who found a bunch of left over ww2 machinery and filmed themselves having fun. I heard about if from some friends, but never seen it myself. It was supposed to be pretty wild. Wish I could remember the name …
