This reef is home to clear bright waters, and lies just adjacent to Wind Sock, with great overhead views of approaching aircraft. Below, the shallows with sand and soft corals form a narrow shelf, quickly dropping to a sloping wall that is home to great sponges, shrimp, barracuda, tarpon, butterfly fish, etc. There was little to no current here, and you can easily complete a 90-minute multi-level dive here.

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.

Eighteen Palms is close to the Van der Valk resort. There was a group of two barracudas that kept on following me... Way Cool!
