Nice shallow dive with lots of elkhorn coral surrounded by schools of fish. A good place to find the small stuff. There were a couple of friendly groupers that followed us around.

Shallow dive. Beautiful coral. Colors were amazing! Lots of fish. Never saw such large Elkhorn coral and it was huge. Lots of fish hid in the Elkhorn making for fun pictures.

there are huge corals here with such great shape. The largest lobster I've ever seen and some great cleaning stations. A must see!

I loved this dive site! I dove this site at night and spotted an octopus; two sea turtles, a scorpion fish, a starfish, several lobsters and shrimp and a sea crab. It was awesome!!

One of my favorite places to dive. Lots of young turtles. Fingers of corals let you spend your time looking for the hidden treasure. Great spot for night diving also. The Elkhorn is growing back nicely. Pretty area fro picture taking.

Elkhorn coral is a rare item in most reefs. There were several groups growing on tops of the coral heads.

The finger coral heads are my favorite types of dives. You go down one and up the next. Then when you get done with the finger corals you can do the tops of the reefs and see the baby fish and so much more.

The Elk Horn Coral was nice. Unfortunately, the last Hurricane had damaged a lot of the coral, but it was still a good dive site full of many colorful fish.

As the crew of Reef Divers explained - as soon as a reef is given a name for what is on it, that element often disappears! Stag and Elkhorn coral are one of the first victims of hurricane surge damage. The 2004 and 2008 hurricanes did tear things up however there is some Elkhorn coral regrowing - its not a... More
