The Playpen or Tri-County Artificial Reef is often done as a drift dive combining this garbage dump of cement pipes, concrete blocks and light posts with another dive site named Rock Piles, just to the north. It was created in 1990 and literally is a maze of tunnels, holes and swimtroughs all on top of a sandy area full of stingrays and other small macroscopic creatures.

Rock Piles is known for its encounters with sharks and eagle rays, while Playpen is just an awesome dive site where you need another pair of eyes to see it all. Fish that are often seen at those two dive sites are barracuda, groupers and several types of angelfish and parrotfish. Photographers will love this area as there is much to explore and there are enough opportunities to shoot some great wide angle photographs or some detailed close-ups.
