Canyon Lands (40’-100’) 12-30m.-A plateau adorned with coral ridges makes its downward turn near 40’. Deep canyons mobbed with marine growth cut into the reef‘s facade that descends to 100’ where it meets a sloping sandy bottom.
Keyhole (40’-90’) 12-27m.-The reef‘s shallows are a porous hardground covered in colorful corals. Narrow slot canyons burrow through its foundation at 30’ where overhangs enclose parts of the narrow channel that exits to the outer wall at 80’.
Andy’s Wall (15’-130’) 5-40m.-The bountiful shallows roll to the crest of the wall at 60’. Embellished by both hard and soft corals, the colorful wall reaches depths as great as 130’ before giving way to the dark abyss.

Massive caverns penetrate the bowels of the fringe reef, some as deep as 35‘ and as long as 150’. Adorned by hard corals, they exit onto a rippled plain at 40’ that extends seaward. Dolphins Den got its name from a series of dolphin pods found dead inside the caverns. They were believed to have become disoriente
Calvin’s Crack (20’-110’) 6-33m.-Brain corals and gorgonians thrive on the dual-layered plateau and a fissure cuts through to its foundation starting at 30’. Narrow at first, the “crack” resembles more of a tunnel due to numerous overhangs. As its sandy floor progressively gets deeper, the monolithic channel, adorned with wire corals, opens onto the wall’s facade at 85’. Currents may be present on the outer wall.

Parrot Tree (10’-120’) 3-36m.-Sand canals navigate a maze of lettuce corals to the wall’s edge at 30’. To the west, the wall drops vertically with bulging overhangs and a tunnel at 35’ that exits on the upper shelf at 15‘. The eastern wall is terraced and cut by fissures with dense marine growth. Currents may be present.
Pirate’s Point (45’-150’) 14-45m.-(a.k.a. Tulio’s Wall) The reef’s face is inhabited by bountiful gorgonian gardens as sand chutes weave to the precipice at 60‘.

Prince Albert Wreck (45’-65’) 14-20m.-Resting at 60’ and flanked by two towering coral wall‘s, a.k.a. Channel Shore, the freighter measures 140’ from bow to stern. Sunk in 1985, the ship is beautified by an abundance of soft and hard corals. Multiple access points make the wreckage easy to penetrate its spacious interior. A fin kick away within the channel lies the fully intact fuselage of a DC-3 airplane.
Newman’s Wall (20’-120’) 6-36m.-A coral shelf banded by sand extends towards its wall at 25’. Broad cuts notch its face as it drops to 90’ to the west.

Hordes of large sea fans cling to the wall‘s sides as it reaches depths of 100’ and more.
Little French Cay Wall (20’-100’) 6-30m.-A surge prone shallow reef adorned with elkhorn corals gradually descends seaward. Escorted by a prominent sand channel to the wall‘s edge at 45’ where sea fans and sponges cling to its overhangs before falling to 100’.
French Cay Bank (40’-130’) 12-40m.-Soft corals amass and surge in the mild currents that flow over the reef’s face at 45’. Sandy patches and small coral heads pepper the bank as it meets the wall‘s berm at 50’ and begins its steep descent to 100‘ and beyond.
Mr. Bud Wreck (40’-130’) 12-40m.-Mr. Bud is a 75’ cargo ship that rests in a sandy channel at 60‘ between two large coral outcroppings and on the ledge of a wall.
