Rating: ****

When I entered the water I put my head under the surface to take a look at the reef below whilst I waited for the other divers to join me and couldn't quite believe my eyes. There were hundreds of jacks swirling around my legs, so many that I could barely make out the reef in between them. As I began my descent a shoal of Atlantic spadefish swam past and back, and then onto the reef where we were headed where they stayed for the next five minutes. I didn't know where to look there was so much going on! On the sand by the rocky outcrops lay a few stingrays about 2m in diameter. I think the reef itself would have been stunning, but I barely paid it any attention due to the amount of fish to watch. This will be your first dive of the day if you are going to the site of the wrecks of Jibacoa and Sparta, which is close by.
