The remains of a sunken shrimp boat, the Cap’n G, are found at the base of the mooring. Coral gardens are filled with barrel sponges of all sizes and colorful hard and soft coral; sea whips decorate the bank around the mooring. Upswells at the edge of the bank bring in schools of hunting fish such as jacks and barracuda. Turtles are occasionally spotted here as well. Intermediate level. Depth ranges from 40’ to past recreational dive limits.Soft corals amass and surge in the mild currents that flow over the reef’s face at 45’. Sandy patches and small coral heads pepper the bank as it meets the wall‘s berm at 50’ and begins its steep descent to 100‘ and beyond.
