Parlatuvier Bay
London Arch

Washaroo is the local name given to the very large midnight parrotfish that is found in abundance on this dive.

Located north of St. Giles Island, this dive can be done when the Northeast Trade Winds have subsided considerable and the strength of currents decreased. The dive heads in an easterly direction at an average depth of 60-70 feet.

The reef slopes gently to a sandy bed at 120 feet and is covered with huge boulders topped with sea fans, a variety of sponges and hydroids. Along the way there are many "mini walls" and ample overhangs accompanied by nurse sharks, lobsters and squirrelfish.

Numerous small caves are scattered along the wall where juvenile spotted drums with their long dorsal fins gather. Look for angelfish, groupers, basslets and other species of parrotfish.
