this is a great site for both wide angle and marco photographers, it always has cursing reef and nurse sharks. Turtle and sting rays come in the area quite recently feed on the Sponges and garden eels. The Wall is very colourful and full of life with lots of schooling fish and Marine life.

As you make you way into the shallows it has only a few coral heads and sand all over the place. it great becasue all the coral head in the sand attract almost everything around the area so you can always find many creatures and juv. fish living their. And the sand has some sea grass where pimy filefish pipefish and pipehorses can be found. Also if you are lucky you can even find a Shortnose batfish lying around in the sand. during nights dives at this site, grass squid come out and many octopus come and enjoy the sands flats and the few coral headed around the area. The stingrays rome around the dark feeding as well. The only down side to diving this site at night is the fact that just under the boat their is so much sand so you have to find either the wall or the amazing reef system closer to the shallows if you head north east from the morning you'll be able to find the reef system

the Depth is 45 feet at the morning and by the time you get to the wall it is around 60 feet and the top of the wall, and the wall drops down to very deep depths beyond the recreational dive limit.
