Evaluation

*Average:    4.07
Located on the South side of the jetty leading into Plaza Resort harbor. Parking area available, but it's a 150'+ hike to the beach. Closest beach entry has some rocky ledges close to shore, tricky footing. Snorkel out across an open sand channel. Some isolated coral heads in this area. Sand bottom eventually slopes down to 120' or more. Top of the wall starts at 25' and 100' offshore on your left as you descend, and follows contour of the sand channel. Macro heaven, lots of corals and sponges, small fish along the wall. Located two frogfish close together on some sponges, great photos. Swimming into a slight current as you go out, but can drift on the way back in. Coral heads in the sand slope above the wall are a good place for a deco stop. Visibility lower due to the current.
