Whale’s Head

This is a nice shallow dive, perfect for snorkeling and beginning divers, starting in just 5 feet of water and ending in 50 feet with a sandy bottom. There is lots of great coral growth and tons of reef fish to see. You can even hear humpbacks singing under the water at some times of the year.

Wildlife encounters include semi-tropical pacific species like octopuses, lobsters, eagle rays, mantas, eels, parrotfish, angelfish, tuna, sea lions, and possible humpback whales.
