    Dominant Features

    This dive usually starts about 200 meters north of the Big Bend and lets the gentle prevailing southerly current (approx. 1/2 kt) carry you towards Cabbage Patch. However, be watching out for short counter currents in the area of the Bend. There are also many fissures cutting way into the wall, along with ledges, swim-throughs, and niches that make this a good dive to just poke along and explore the holes. Below 50 ft. (15 M) the wall switches to a gentle slope that drops down to the depths.


    This site features a wide variety of hard coral species. Check out the variety of tubeworms in the Porite bommies. Similar to Spanish Wall, some of the small niches are filled with delicate, white Pulse coral.

    Fish Life

    Almost every ledge and hole hides reef fish. Turtles have been seen resting on the terrace just below the wall. On the longer drifts, you’ll be going through more than one of the territories staked out by large, resident barracuda. Watch for them near the large crevice openings.
