 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Very murky from the hurricane yet, but a very nice place. We headed north paralleling the shore. There are many cuts 15 feet deep into the reef that run east west. Hopping the ridges I saw many fish and nice soft corals. We did drop into a narrow cut and a swim-through that was very tight. The further north we got the more battered the reef was. Nice sandy bottoms in the canyons. Saw flamingo toughs, two huge gray angles, a juvenile spotted drum, porkfish, one-eyed jacks, and a school of mackerel.
