We came across white tip reef sharks, a sea turtle, and a couple nudibranchs along with all the colorful reef fish living here. There was some beautiful soft coral but mostly hard coral coverage here. This makes sense after seeing the beating it takes from the waves above. And this was just a 'small day', so overhead sets coming in.
The reef here formed around an ancient caldera that has sunk back into the ocean. The reef remains, lurking just below the surface. Imagine driving away from land, out in the middle of the ocean, and seeing a line of white. Getting closer you realize that line of white is actually whitewater from massive waves breaking in the middle of nowhere. It is a very unique dive and surf spot.
