Mahogany and yellowtail snappers, goatfish, and French grunts are usually seen among the many varieties of hard coral that have formed here.

Papa Doc Wreck

The ammunition clips of mercenaries en route to Haiti to overthrow Duvalier can occasionally be found amid the coral heads and engine blocks of this 1968 wreck.
