Description of dive: Massive amounts of fish on this reef…more than we’ve ever seen. Schooling snapper, grunts, ballyhoo. Seven nurse sharks and seven green morays spotted. Stingrays, grouper, angels, stone fish, lobster, and tropicals of all kinds. This dive was one of the best ever on this reef. The only down side is that the reef is still suffering from Hurricane damage, which will probably take many years to recover from.
