Cistern Point

DEPTH: 10-40 FEET (3-12 M) LEVEL: NOVICE On the southern end of postcard-perfect Manchioneel Bay, a rocky point carpeted with life projects out to sea. Cistern Point is a fabulous shallow dive as well as one of the better snorkeling spots. Swim leisurely around to the other side looking for spotted eagle rays, plentiful queen angelfish, thick schools of sergeant majors and chromis, as well as jacks and traveling bands of gray snappers. Cistern Point gets its name from a series of shallow craters on the far side that are interesting to explore. On top of the ridge there are schools of blue tang, goatfishes, beautiful anemones and active cleaning stations. During the late spring and early summer months, schools of tiny silvery fry congregate in the shallows and massive shiny tarpon cut through the schools, grabbing mouthfuls of the little fish.
