Comments The numerous reef fish would keep even the most accomplished diver busy noting all the species that you see on each dive. The Anthias were spectacular. Be sure to speak up and let the dive masters (Andrew) know what you want to see. He will be sure that you score your target critter. He will help you locate even the smallest tube fishes. We saw black and whit banded sea snakes on two dives. Turtles being cleaned by some really large cleaner wrasses. A school of Humphead wrasses were on the reef on one day of diving--thirty or so ranging from 100-300 pounds. Blue and yellow fusiliers in a school of several thousand fish covered the reef and poured around the divers, they were the only thing you could see for two or three minutes. I observed 6 species of anemone fish on the top of "Pinnacle reef". The swim through is excellent for beginners and seasoned divers alike. Scorpionfish, frog fish, eels, garden eels (two species) all were seen on the Pinnacle dive. Blue spotted sting rays, catfish in a ball, too many to mention. Andrew was a very knowledgeable dive guide. They take care of EVERYTHING with regard to your gear!! Bring extra fruit on the boat for the ride back.
