A Sub-Aquatic Paradise to Explore
Marine life is plentiful and widespread in the warm waters that surround both islands. The currents in this corner of the Caribbean circulate waters at an almost constant 28°C ( 82°F) making it ideal for spawning and raising young. Juvenile species are abundant on the coral reefs as they use the shelter to grow in relative safety. As with many places in the world a new visitor has arrived bearing ill-fortune for many of these juvenile fish....the predatory Lionfish. Thankfully, their numbers are small compared to most other Caribbean reef systems and look like they are decreasing thanks to sustained efforts by the dive industry here to cull them and protect the overall health of the ecosystem.
