I used to live in Coral Springs, about 12 miles away in 2000 and 2001 and dove this location a couple of times and snorkeled it at other times. I have seen visibility there from 10ft. (in January) to 70ft. (June). There were coral heads 3-4ft. High (star and brain coral), and purple sea fans 3ft. High. On one Saturday morning in June, the day with 70ft. Visibility, I say a baby Manta ray (about 9ft. Across) just off the beach in about 7ft. Of water, then later had an 8ft. Nurse shark swim over my right shoulder, then saw a green moray about 5ft. Long, and saw a gray angelfish along with other tropicals. Wow, what a day, for a diver from Texas!
