Trix Caves is a reef full of overhangs. Even with strong currents, there will always be a place to shelter and snoop between the sea fans and brightly coloured soft corals for ornate shrimps and different nudibranches. Fan corals, whip corals and bushes of black coral show that this is a healthy reef teeming with life. Cup corals and midnight corals have their orange and green polyps in bloom in even moderate currents. Spot-faced morays provide a bright alternative to the common giant and honeycomb moray eels. Scorpion fish and frogfish are worthy targets for sharp fish spotters. The reef ends with an amazing coral garden perfect for the safety stop.
