Evaluation

*Average:    3.35
Excellent place to see turtles. I've never seen fewer than 15 turtles there, 1/3 being 5'+ in length. LONG surface swim or walk (100 yards) from the beach to the wall. Best done as a multilevel dive: go off to the mid-left, drop down off the wall to 45'~90'. Swim east along the wall's bottom, then rise to 60' for 20 minutes, then follow one of the channels back toward shore in 30'~15' of water for the remainder of your air + safety stop. Big turtles at the wall; yard-long turtles in the channels. Beware of jetskis.
