I loved the fact that you feel so small as this amazing wall drops into abyss. There was so much to see and the current was minimal.

Wow! What a beautiful dive site! I only wish I knew how deep it was really going to be before getting on the boat. This would have been better diving on air instead of Nitrox.

Almost directly beneath the boat on the inside of the wall is a swim-through where you enter beneath a HUGE anchor embedded in the reef. The swim-through starts at about 90 feet and descends to about 115 feet at the Y. Taking the other side of the Y brings you back through to the inside of the wall. Taking the tail of the Y will take you through to the outside of the wall at some deeper depth. On Nitrox, I was unable to go there. As we were ascending out from the other arm of the Y, there was a large (8 - 9 ft) Caribbean reef shark passing by...! It was beautiful! There were many other forms of sea life and corals to explore, but that made it very memorable!

If you have a chance to dive Anchor Wall, do it on air and explore the full swim-through. I hear it is amazing! What we saw was incredible! Of course, I hope they get the mooring line replaced before you go. It snapped on us when the group was at 30 feet and slowly ascending for our safety stop... Very interesting dive!

The anchor is clearly visible. It is lodged between two coral heads. There was a swim through under the anchor out to the wall drop off.

What was loved most was the prolific array of sponge-life, the tag along Nassau Grouper, and the Reef Shark that were curious as to what was going on - not aggressive in any manner, just curious. It was great!

This is our fav dive site! Deep dive but has alot to offer. If you can find the anchor, this is a great photo op! Then you have an excellent swim thru that spits you out over the wall. Everytime we have dove this site we see carribean reef sharks! Fantastic dive=)
