Description: This is a wall reef with a jagged cut, just below the boat mooring, which Bob the Nassau grouper calls home. The turn-around is marked by a long, sandy plateau, ending in a small chimney, that reef sharks often cruise along. Divers return along the reef top’s spur and groove zone, offering plenty of hiding places for lionfi sh and sleeping nurse sharks
