West Point 1 and 2 description

West Point 1 and 2 basic informations

The visibility at these sites is highly dependent upon winds and tides, but the labyrinth of reef buttresses makes this site great even when visibility is down. The walls are very vertical and start in only 20’ - 25’ of water. Loads of black coral and deep water gorgonians abound, as do giant barrel sponges and red finger sponges. You are likely to see mangrove tunicates here. The shallow sandy area is alive with garden eels, peacock flounders, and southern stingrays. In the sandy areas, blue throated pike blennies can be found.
