This rock juts up out of the ocean just east of Congo Cay. If you are an experienced open water diver, it is another dive that should not be missed. There are strong currents in the vicinity of the rock, and it takes careful planning to make this dive properly. You can swim through one of the cuts to the outside of the rock, head up-current to the north-east tip, move inside and let the current carry you back inside to your boat. The shallow coral gardens on the way back to the boat are good places to look for nurse sharks, reef squid and octopus. In the spring and early summer, large schools of tarpon feed on baitfish around the rock making for some exciting underwater action. The sight of 30 or more large tarpon, brilliant silver sides flashing like underwater lightning as they tear into a solid blanket of bait fish, is one you are not likely to forget. The bottom here drops off fast on the outside to 70 feet, then gently slopes out to just over 100 feet.
