Proberbly the best dive at French Cay! The mooring is at a depth of 50ft and is a short swim over to the wall. The bottom composition is reef consisting of massive barrel and tube sponges and coral heads rich with life. Out on the wall, a small section, from 50ft all the way down to 120ft. is covered in deep water gorgonias and massive orange elephant ear sponges hanging to the wall... Spectacular to see! The gorgonias are home to a variety of marine life and a slow inspection can reveal many interesting creatures. Reef shark are common. One reef shark stayed with us for almost the entire dive!, sometimes coming within an arms length away. Keep an eye out for eagle rays - as many as 6 or more are often seen together.
