This is a perfect dive for beginners,
snorkelers, or those looking for a shallow reef. The mooring is in 15 feet of water
by a large sand patch surrounded by beautiful coral. A short distance out the wall
drops form 10 feet to 40 feet. The top of the wall is always crowded with wrasse,
Bermuda Chubb and lost of smaller colorful fishes. Below is a vast sand patch with
intermittent coral mounds. You will quite often see Atlantic stingrays buried in
the sand or gliding off, disturbed by your presence.
