Mt Olympus: As the name suggests, this site really is “home of the gods”. High-profile coral starts in about 60ft of water and drops off to over 1500ft with a stair-step at about 125ft. Awe-inspiring canyons of coral dwarf the scuba divers, and we occasionally see hammerhead sharks cruising the wall.
Ok...you want a wall dive???...are you sure??? This is the spot that has kept you dreaming. This is a deep dive. It starts like the rest of the dives...with a briefing and a reminder... be safe! not stupid.

The reef is a N/S ridge that runs for about a 1/2 mile. The sand on the eastern side of this towering living structure is in 100' of water. The sand on the western side is only in 1700' of water. The actual wall starts around 130'. If you are not comfortable with these depths you need not feel slighted on this dive. While the top of the reef is at 60 feet, there is plenty to see at that depth. In fact, that is what most people do on this dive as they want as much bottom time as possible so they can stay in this aquatic paradise.
