Believe Capt. Rick's post about the conditions for doing this dive. If you see breakers out from the shore, this is from the shallow bottom and reef rising up from the bottom. Pretty difficult to drag your belly across on the way out/in. That area is about 75 to 100 yards to cross, so pay close attention. That being said, I agree that it is one of the best dives ever. First you come to lots of BIG coral head formations about 45 deep. Lots of fish too. Then comes the spur and groove, which lead you to the Awesome WALL which abruptly drops...to DEEP. The wall is filled with numerous swim throughs starting at 50 ft and drop...once again to DEEP. The wall is pretty much a straight drop with great undercuts. Fabulous formations! DO NOT undertake this dive lightly, considering distance from shore, possible currents, difficult entry/exit. Once you master the above it is a GREAT DIVE!!!
