I loved this dive site! I dove this site at night and spotted an octopus; two sea turtles, a scorpion fish, a starfish, several lobsters and shrimp and a sea crab. It was awesome!!

One of my favorite places to dive. Lots of young turtles. Fingers of corals let you spend your time looking for the hidden treasure. Great spot for night diving also. The Elkhorn is growing back nicely. Pretty area fro picture taking.

Elkhorn coral is a rare item in most reefs. There were several groups growing on tops of the coral heads.

The elkhorn coral got a bit battered after the last hurricane. It was amazing to see how fast it is bouncing back!
