The Suburbs (Difficult)

The Suburbs (Difficult)
Southwest

The Suburbs and The Village are richly covered rocky drop-offs that are visited by schools of black durgons, huge barracuda, frequent turtles, and often some big stingrays. One never knows what might pass in this much wilder area, but on the quiet days when nothing exciting happens, take time to enjoy the magnificent coral life. Hundreds of crinoids and sponges paint a brilliantly colorful underwater landscape.  Huge barrel sponges are prolific, and walls of incredibly dense deep-water sea fans frequently conceal shy seahorses.
