Shark Observatory

The site is not aptly named as it is not noted for its shark sightings, however, it is a fantastic dive. Beneath the towering cliffs that continue below the surface to disappear into the deep abyss, the wall is covered with soft coral.

Honeycombed with numerous gullies and canyons that are home to hoards of glassfish and hatchet fish herded by red mouth grouper.
