Rodney’s Rock is a shallow dive (maximum 50 ft) offering one of the best critter dives. A huge variety of marine life can be found at this site, which offers mini caves and overhangs for spiny and slipper lobster, crabs and morays. The vertical faces of the shoreline and large rocks just offshore, covered with huge barrel sponges, gorgonians and hydroids make for a spectacular seascape. Sandy patches with sea grass harbor red heart urchins, sea cucumbers, stingrays, spotted snake eels and the very rare and elusive batfish. The walls of Rodney's Rock are carpeted with corals and sponges providing homes to octopus, frogfish, seahorses and numerous grunts and snapper. This site is a favorite for night dives when squid, lobsters and crabs are out in full view.
