I snorkled there and dove down about 25 feet one time and saw a small (30-40 lb) goliath grouper one time.

The dive club just did a Dive-N-Dine there last weekend and I got reports of decent sized grouper, but no monsters. I would not be suprised if there were a few monster hanging out there though. It's an awesome dive and well worth the drive, lots of life on the rocks.



Make sure you plan the tides right!
