The 20-mile long wall, located about 4 miles offshore, has a series of slopes and sheer drop-offs that start at 9m/30ft and continue to 36m/120ft. The Wall is home to sponges, elkhorn coral, gorgonians, black coral and many more underwater creatures. Shoals of fish form columns underwater creating quite a site for visiting divers. Local waters are also full of barracudas, mantas, black durgon, triggerfish, large dog snappers, queen angels, Spanish hogfish, rays, turtles, moray eels, large crabs as well as sharks and sometimes even dolphins. Currents are low, less than 1 knot, and visibility is more than 30m/98ft, so the site is a great spot for underwater photographers. This dive is suitable for divers of all levels.
