Description: This wall reef bows inwards, like a giant bowl. Divers follow the curve of the bowl, exploring the steep wall to the south where reef sharks are often sighted. Divers return through the back reef, which contains plenty of sponges and soft corals as well as fl amingo tongues and trumpetfish
Points of special interest (click on map for position):
1- Dome shaped corals – Boulder star corals form domes in the shallows and plates in deeper water - adaptations that allow them to capture more light in each environment. Many of the dome shaped coral at Shangrilla are also home to cleaning stations
2- Red lionfish zone – This invasive species was accidentally introduced to the Caribbean from the Pacific and has become a little too successful here, where it has no natural predators
3- Shark zone – Caribbean reef sharks are often spotted cruising along...
