The Convent

Geotag Icon Show on map
Located in front of the Fresh Water Bay, this site is reached using the triangulation between Tapou Point and Maria Inmaculada School (The Convent) as a land mark.

Descending through the buoy s rope, one reaches 50 ft, where a big sand hole, surrounded by a big coralline shoal, is found. One borders this shoal until the cliff, where it is possible to choose between continuing the descent until an accorded depth or doing a shallower immersion through the border at 60 ft. Coralline formations are characterized by growing as mounds of star boulder (Montastrea) and brain coral; in the steep slope, Agaricia shingle reef is present. A great diversity of Hamlet fishes is observed, specially the Providentian or Mask Hamlet (Hypoplectrus providencianus), which was first described on this island. It s a relaxing dive with frequent sightings of big snappers or turtles.
