Owner description: This 10-acre coral reef and the tropical fish that inhabit it have long been popular among tourists, but have suffered in recent years from the many visitors.
Reviewed 27 November 2012

The reefs have clearly been over visited, but there are still a lot of fish and varieties to see. it is clear the fish are habituated, as they didn't seem to mind us snorkelling around and some were quite curious, checking us out, coming close. Part of a great trip with Peter Zoe Tours.

The sea was calm and the boat ride was made enjoyable by the chatter of our self-styled Captain. We couldn't see the fish clearly, but the view from the glassbottom of Miss Jo, the boat, was quite good. My wife got sick from looking down in a heaving boat. It was nice to see the seaweeds and I liked what the captain said when some of the weeds had golden tinge to them. "you will feel precious seeing the gold there", he said.

Buccoo Reef is still wonderful to behold, but unfortunately you can see the damage that it has suffered before it was regulated by the government. You now travel out in a glass bottom boat, but for the best view you can go snorkelling (it is of course supervised).

Took a trip out on one of the glass bottom bots and had a 15 minute snorkle amongst the reef. It's not as colourful as it probably once was but there is a nice variety of fish and corel to see. Well worth a trip.

I actually travelled to Buccoo for an event called "Sunday School" - this event is as stated held on a Sunday - it involves listening to all genres of music from the steelbands to the sounds of soca and reggae - will definitely return again
