The Dive:
This is a steep drop-off and wall with some areas covered in big boulders, offering the opportunity to spot grouper. Small caverns are found at this site with two seperate underwater archways, one easily negotiable by divers the other too small for divers to swim through. Damselfish are found here, mostly juveniles, which are royal blue in colour. Octopus and moray eels are common and their lairs can be spotted by the shell and crab debris which litter the foreground.
