Nautilus Reef sits just off Point Panic, a popular shore dive site off downtown Honolulu. This patch reef is interspersed with, and surrounded by, sand flats and rubble. The reef has moderate coral cover and plenty of overhangs, ledges, and crevices for a wide variety of marine life.
Green turtles are often seen here, as are Yellow Tangs, Longnose Butterflyfish, Brown Surgeonfish, Yellowfin Goatfish, and Octopus.
