Invisibles

An easily accessible shore dive with a double reef feature. The first reef is shallow and great for beginning divers and snorkelers. The second reef is a bit deeper and separated by a long, skinny sand flat.

A great site to see garden eels in the sand channel between the reefs. Spotted drums, parrotfish, trunkfish and spotted eagle rays are also likely to be seen.
