Pillsbury Sound   Mingo Passage

Mingo Passage
 
Mingo Passage

Mingo Passage is a very colorful, shallow reef with a higher concentration of small fish. This site is also a great place to find eels, lobsters, and sometimes octopus. The reef becomes more dense throughout the dive and is complemented by large black sea fans and huge barrel sponges. Make sure to look around during the dive so you don't miss spotted eagle rays or schools of fish passing by.        

 

 

 

Mingo Bay


   
Mingo Bay

Mingo Bay is a sloping reef that tapers down to a vast sand flat. The sand flat is anything but void of sea life... garden eels, upside down jelly fish, conch, and hermit crabs are frequently present. In addition, there are mounds or islands of reef that are very colorful and create a perfect place for fish and other marine life to take shelter. The upper part of the reef is a shallow shelf and creates a perfect environment to have a close encounter with either a green or hawksbill turtle.          

 

 

Squid Ville


 
Squidville

Squidville is another great sloping reef that offers an easy entry with a sandy bottom and then progresses into a beautiful reef packed with fish. One never knows what to expect here... sting rays, turtles, all sizes of fish, lobsters and eels are common. This is a common site for our Discover Scuba divers but is a great dive for all levels of experience.        

 

 

 

Grass Cay 
 

Grass Cay

Grass Cay is a nice combination of large coral heads, sloping reef, and mounds on the sand flat. Navigate around the mounds out on the sandy area, swim around the coral heads, and then work your way along the sloping reef for a diverse bottom topography.
