My wife and I dove this site in March of 2012. We bagged it on the first day due to very high swells. We returned the next day and found the conditions much better. We had some current heading south, so we went out to the north. Being pretty much on the southern tip of the island, this site has been beat up a bit by strong waves. Nevertheless, it was a nice dive site with lots of little sand chutes where the sand actually flows and trickles down the slope like a river under the water. Lot's of soft coral here and we did see a good size tortoise. It looks like good habitat for eagle rays although we did not see any. As mentioned before, this site could be dangerous if this current is too strong to swim against. The story on the historical marker about the slave huts and the salt mines was worth the trip here if the seas are too big.
