This rarely visited site off the east end of St. John is best known for "The Cathedral", a large, open chamber accessed by multiple entryways. Look up to see streams of sunlight pouring in from the "skylight". "The Cathedral" is used for underwater weddings. This mound of coral rises from deep water to within a couple of feet from the surface. The area is full of coral caves and channels that teem with copper sweepers and small baitfish. The baitfish will bunch up in a tight ball like bugs around a light and try to hide in one of the coral caves while jacks dart in to feed, sending them scattering like chaff in the wind. Because this area is so exposed to the open ocean on all sides, it is one of the best places to see sharks and manta rays.
