Progress Energy Reef (Shady Lady Shrimpboat)

The Shady Lady is a shrimp boat that is laying on it's side. It is also known as the Progress Energy Reef because they provided a generous donation to help clean up and sink the ship as an artificial reef. See www.mbara.org for more info and exact coordinates. This is one of the best dives in the area with amazing life. We frequently spot three resident Goliath Groupers, a large Cubera Snapper, occasional sharks (bull, blacktip, sharpnose), cobia, lots of colorful angels, butterflies, damsels and chromis, and scads of small pelagics such as jacks and red snappers. For macro photographers, there are lots of tiny blennies, shrimp, and cowries to be found.
