18 Palms is the house reef for the Plaza Resort. I have dove it many times and always find it enjoyable. The site is great for all levels of divers. A very easy entry with a sandy bottom makes it a nice place for underwater photography, and also great for night diving. Lots to see including, tarpon, ocean triggers, parrot-fish, southern sting rays, octopus, schooling tang and if you're lucky a seahorse or frog fish.
