Sponge Reef

This site is named Sponge Reef for good reason: it is covered in brightly colored, large sponges as far as the eye can see. Turtles also frequent this site.

You’ll see typical Caribbean life like nurse and reef sharks, possible eagle rays, turtles, stingrays, and lots of fish: snapper, angelfish, grunts, parrot fish, and grouper.
