Description:
Fishpot is an elongated reef located between St Martin and Anguilla. One side of the reef lies at about 45 feet (14 meters) and then slopes down to about 60 feet (20 meters) on the far Anguilla side of the reef. There are beautiful old Pillar Corals here that have created a home for many juvenile fish, who in turn attract the larger fish as well. We often see dolphins here in the winter months as well as eagle rays, turtles and a very healthy area of staghorn coral (which is rare on most reefs in the Caribbean). One of the best dives at Fishpot was when a pod of 12 dolphins came over to hang out with the divers, they stayed with us for about 20 minutes. Unforgettable.
