With nearly 100% coral coverage over most of the area, and higher coral diversity than most places on Oahu, Horseshoe Reef is a spectacularly beautiful site. That it sites right off downtown Honolulu makes it all that much more amazing. To those with a good imagination, the reef is shaped roughly like a horseshoe and depths range from 35-55’. With all this high quality habitat you can find lots of organisms that make their homes in corals.
The corals are home to dozens of shrimp and crab species. Coral Crouchers, Dragon Morays, Yellowhead Morays, Leaf Scorpionfish, and Anglerfish are common too.
