Evaluation

*Average:    3.18
We saved this dive as one of the last, but the day before was windy and left the viz at about 40-50' due to a very sandy bottom between the double reef system. We had heard that this site is an excellent spot to see Eagle Rays if you get there early. So due to relatively poor viz, I don't have a lot of really great things to report on this site (except for a very nice colony of garden eels in the sand at 100'), but I would like to state a word of caution. Either the outer reef ends short of the inner reef, or they become very far apart if you head out due west. We must have kicked out close to a quarter mile searching for the outer reef and noticing the bottom depth was now about 200' and it just kept darker we finally turned around and used the rest of our tanks on the inner reef as we basically had no other choice. No other commenters mentioned this, but if the viz is poor, make sure your heading from the anchor buoy is more like 300 degrees (rather than 270 degrees.) We did pass by the outer reef on our way back in so it is definitely there! (or perhaps at times it is just 'invisible?')
