Amazing Mini Wall

For those of you who have dived turtle reef, think of turtle reef but better. Loads of orange elephant ear sponges and other colorful critters. Defenitly dive this site. You can reach it from the Coconut Bay apartments.

Wonderful dive site

I am lucky to have this as a shore dive from the Coconut Bay condos. This is probably the site I dive more than any other, and I love it.

Plenty to see in the shallows, on top of the mini wall, and at the bottom of the overhang. You just drop down, see which way the current is going, head down to the bottom of the mini wall and head into the current. Lots of fun stuff on the small coral spurs - stingrays, turtles are common, lobster, big grouper, tarpon, garden eels, hog fish. Then, at half tank you head up to the top of the mini wall, watching what is hidden on the wall itself.

Then, heading back to the cut you see one of the healthiest reefs I have seen in a long while. The number of fish there is incredible, both adult and juvenile. Porcupine fish, triggers, filefish, plus all the usual suspects, tangs, blennies, durgons...

The only thing that makes this dive a challenge can be the currents around North West Point. Sometimes they are just too strong to have a decent dive there. This is possibly the reason that the site is so good - less regular traffic.
