The reef hosts a tremendous variety of marine wildlife. During your dive, you’ll see pillar and boulder coral along with sea fans and sea sponges. Look for tiny fish and other marine wildlife hiding under the ridges of the coral reef — these types of ridges are called “spurs” and “grooves,” and they’re formed by the waves headed for shore.
Divers to this reef can expect to see groupers, nurse sharks, spotted eagle rays, and sea turtles. These animals are fairly used to human visitors, and sometimes they’ll swim alongside you as you explore. This is just a short list – the reef is home to 500 species of fish and marine invertebrates.
Participants should be certified divers and in good physical and medical condition with no physical limitations to participate. Certification card should be presented.
