Located at the South end of French Reef lies the Amphitheater, a great shallow dive site consisting of a large sandy area with a dramatic, curving crescent coral formation on the Southeast side. A short swim to Christmas Tree Cave and the Hourglass, this is a very popular spot on the reef. Walls and pinnacles of coral with deep undercuts are numerous on this part of the reef, making this an ideal site for divers who like to go slow and explore under every ledge.

Plenty of schooling fish including Grunts, Snappers and Schoolmasters can be found at the South end of the reef, but the highlight here is the virtual rainbow of colors displayed by the hard and soft corals as well as the vase and barrel sponges.

A perfect site for new as well as experienced divers. A 25 to 30 foot maximum depth means plenty of bottom time and donít forget to bring your camera.
