This dive begins in 45 feet of water at our site named "Jeff's Ladder." Here, we will anchor on the west side of two large sand patches. We will swim across one of the patches noting the individual pillar type coral heads growing in the sand with small tropical fishes living around them. Invertebrates like lobsters and crabs are particularly easy to spot in this area.
After crossing the sand patch we will come to the false wall which is a drop off down to 65 feet. The coral here is thick with crevices and catacombs to explore. From here, the sea floor stretches out for a short distance with larger coral heads growing in thick patches.
We will continue swimming until we reach the top of the wall at 80 feet. We will swim either north or south until we reach thirds on air, or our time limit. We will then head back up and over the wall and then back to the anchor line. With air and time permitting, we pull the anchor and drift shallower, covering a large area of the coral reef.
