Very Cool Swim Through

You have to be looking for the anchor.... The swim through comes out at 110 ft. Lots of sponges. Great dive site.

I think this was my most favorite dive of the trip, even including the Bloody Wall! I really enjoyed the swim-throughs and the Wall. Our dive master, Tom, with Reef Divers was an excellent guide.

This is a must dive in "The Brac", the swim through is amazing just don't forget to look up at the embedded anchor in the wall as you enter.

This dive is a beautiful wall with a huge anchor at the entrance to a swim through that comes out at 110 feet. Huge friendly grouper hang out there and you may catch a shark also. Ask Jeff and Joe to take you there!

We did this as a drift dive and I enjoyed it very much. Look for the anchor at the very beginning of the swim thru or you will miss it.

I loved the fact that you feel so small as this amazing wall drops into abyss. There was so much to see and the current was minimal.

Wow! What a beautiful dive site! I only wish I knew how deep it was really going to be before getting on the boat. This would have been better diving on air instead of Nitrox. Almost directly beneath the boat on the inside of the wall is a swim-through where you enter beneath a HUGE anchor embedded in the reef.... More

The anchor is clearly visible. It is lodged between two coral heads. There was a swim through under the anchor out to the wall drop off.

What was loved most was the prolific array of sponge-life, the tag along Nassau Grouper, and the Reef Shark that were curious as to what was going on - not aggressive in any manner, just curious. It was great!
