Reef Tip #2

[]
 

CARELESS ANCHORING
Responsible divers anchor only when there are no permanent mooring buoys to tie to. Never drop anchor onto, or even close to, living corals. Careful anchoring means placing the anchor in broad sand channels or other low impact areas. Anchor chains and ropes can crush corals as the boat swings and shifts in current and wind. Prudent divers check the anchor on descending to insure it will not drag and damage the reef.
