This is a site that is very close to the dolphin grounds . There is a friendly nurse shark that lives here along with a host of other reef friends.

The reef is a long oval that is oriented North-South. It is surounded by a white sandy bottom. On the eastern side it is about 50' and on the western side it is about 75'. The top of the reef averages about 35-40'.

It's location is very near The Mountains so it is close to the edge of the Bank. This allows it to be fed by the super warm and clear waters of the Gulfstream. Also, by being in the transition zone from deep to shallow waters you also have the bigger pelagic fish swim by on occasion.

The most beautiful part of this reef is by far it's abundant and diverse sponge and soft coral gardens. This is truly a color-filled spot in the ocean with many friendly creatures to visit.
