Great corals

there are huge corals here with such great shape. The largest lobster I've ever seen and some great cleaning stations. A must see!

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 finger coral heads are my favorite types of dives. You go down one and up the next. Then when you get done with the finger corals you can do the tops of the reefs and see the baby fish and so much more.

The Elk Horn Coral was nice. Unfortunately, the last Hurricane had damaged a lot of the coral, but it was still a good dive site full of many colorful fish.

As the crew of Reef Divers explained - as soon as a reef is given a name for what is on it, that element often disappears! Stag and Elkhorn coral are one of the first victims of hurricane surge damage. The 2004 and 2008 hurricanes did tear things up however there is some Elkhorn coral regrowing - its not a... More

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