Dive Site: About 100 feet from shore, there is a long, 6 ft wide trench that leads all the way to the other side of the reef (east to west). The entrance of the trench is an underwater arch that gives divers the impression that they have entered a cave. About half way through, the trench splits into a Y. One leads to the middle of the reef, the other to the northern side of the reef.

This trench is accessible only when conditions are calm, otherwise water pushes through at high speed, making it unsafe, if this the can we can hit the outer reef between Shaws and Crescent which is very nice also!

What you’ll see: On any given dive you can see a lobsters, eels, rays, octopus, garibaldi, calico bass, Kellet’s welks, tree fish, giant sheepshead, bat stars, and lots of purple sea urchins. The Shelly of Shaw statue is between 35-37ft

Site Facilities: 1/2 a block up the street to Crescent bay
