This is one of my favorite dives. The best way to dive here is by doing a drift dive. Parking is far from the site (Whalers' Village), so preferably bring a friend who can drop you off at the golf course to gear up. Enter at the beach north of Black Rock (between Airport & Black Rock). Drop by the wall that is on the rock. You will see numerous reef fish, turtles, and if lucky a monk seal that hangs out. There is a huge wall that is loaded with life. Drift around the rock and you will surface at the Sheraton. There are showers there. Taking you time, this is about a 45-50 minute dive with a max depth of 35 feet. This is also a great night dive. Many of the local shops send their night dive boats here.
