My experience on the jetties was quite good. The water was very clear and entry wasn't difficult. I saw quite an abundance of animal life; however, there was not much plant life. Some of the animals I encountered were blue crabs, which were quite large and the most abundant of any life I saw. Other animals I saw were juvenile and adult sheepshead, lots and lots of hardtail, needlenose fish of all sizes. Some fish that I wasn't familiar had black and white bands, and looked kinda like an angel fish,. Another species I saw looked like a mudskipper, but it couldn't have been due to the salt water. Thankfully I didn't have any run-ins with sharks, which occasionally end up on the jetties. But then again these sharks frequent the beach, as well. You've just got to let them do their thing I guess -- after all, we are visiting their home. Overall, I would say it was a very fun experience diving off the jetties, and I'm going to go back next weekend!
