Diving - The Indians

Responsive image

DEPTH: 10-60 feet (3-18 M)


These rocky formations are quite spectacular when viewed from the 50 foot sandy bottom. The beautiful colors of the lavish corals and sponges contrast with the rocky ledges and steep walls that rise to the surface. The bright sun streaks its rays across the swell and creates some spectacular photo opportunities.

This entire dive can be done in one tank, however you'll be wishing you had more time to investigate the many passageways. On the east side of the rocks you'll find a large cave filled with Glassy Sweepers.

A saddle at about seven feet between two of the rock pinnacles gives access to a broad, shallow pool. Follow the arched swim-throughs and you'll find yourself right back where you started.

Keep an eye out for Hawksbill Turtles on the deeper sections and nudibranchs in the pond.
