Invisibles

An abundance of moray eels, eagle rays, colonies of garden eels, and large schools of jacks

This dive site has prolific marine life with some uncommon species that normally shun places busy with divers. It is the southernmost site of the double-reef complex that stretches long the coast.

There is a wide variety of shallow water corals including elkhorn and staghorn and plenty of gorgonians. Watch out for some patches of fire coral in the shallows to the north. Numerous spotted trunkfish keep one entertained on the swim out to the reef, and you may well see eagle rays foraging for food in white sandy bottom. There are several colonies of ever curious garden eels near the buoy, and in the sand flat between the reefs. Once on the reef, barracudas, triggerfish, strawberry anemones, black durgon (triggerfish) and plenty of moray eels, including huge green moray eels, are always present.

The shelf turns down sharply at about 9 meters (30 feet) and drops down to a sand flat at about 23 meters (75 feet). On the outer edge of sand flat, the low-lying outer reef rises slightly to about 21 meters (70 feet) from the surface.

The outer reef is not a continuous reef like the inner reef, but rather more like a series of coral islands and is a great place to see fish that normally do not come close to shore. Large shoals of jacks and groupers are frequently spotted there. The outer reef slopes off gradually on its outer edge dropping into deeper water. Huge vase sponges can be seen in about 40 meters (131 feet).
