A tremendous rock and coral formation resembling a mini mountain are the home for a wide range of flora and fauna. Snapper, oriental sweetlips, stonefish, frogfish, coral groupers, remoras, red bass, sea perch and red emperors are all here, and when a good current is present, shoals of tuna and jack, as well as, king jacks are found in mid-water. At 18m/59ft there is a small cave with a white gorgorian fan that occasionally has a white frogfish clinging to it. Basket sponges grow on the rocky coral along with small fans. Tree ferns, soft pink tree corals, feather stars of many colors and tubeworm cover the formation. At 12m/40ft there is a hole that is large and safe enough for a diver with good buoyancy control to swim through. Divers drifting during flood tide from Weat Escarceo fly through this hole. This site can be dived over and over again as there is so much to experience and see. Best to dive it at slack high tide, and due to strong currents in this area it is advisable to take a knowledgeable dive guide with you. It can also be a very colorful night life.
