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.

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