Pelagics, eagle rays and sharks are frequently seen off the wall.

Jeep Reef: is named from a coral encrusted jeep that sits near the mooring is in the middle of the Exumas Land & Sea Park and hosts a healthy population of fish. It is also one of the prettiest reefs you will ever see. Current that sweeps through this cut keeps the reef 's corals very healthy.
