Black Coral Forest

This is a lovely wall dive on Northwest Point of Providenciales. The vertical wall is covered with wire coral, black coral and sponges. The shallows at the top of the wall are covered with hard and soft corals and sponges. What made this particular dive enjoyable was the Caribbean octopus we found toward the end of the dive that was escorted by two Nassau groupers. The octopus hung out with us until we had to return to the boat.
