Captain Kurs: Located North of “Scarface” and South of “Loggerhead” Captain Kurls is nestled in 65 – 70 feet of water and offers the divers a variety of topography ad exploration as the ledge breaks off into three major tiers. Captain Kurl’s gives one the impression of drifting over a series of aquariums. The ledge forms a series of cul-de-sacs, each one with myriad fish and critters.
If they follow the western most ledge, divers can engage in potential spear fishing opportunities as they track hogfish, and various snapper species, though this western ledge does eventually taper off into the sandy bottom and divers will find themselves needing to counter back to the East to pick up the next profile.
Goliath groupers may be seen at the deep part of the ledge while green morays generally stay closer to the top. Loggerhead, green, and hawksbill turtles can be found both on top of the ledge or napping at the bottom. Nurse sharks, some of them huge, nestle under the ledge. An occasional reef shark prefers to cruise the top into the current. Blue, queen, gray, and French Angelfish, along with their rock beauty cousins give the top of the reef their vibrant colors. Reef, four-eye, and Spotfin Butterfly fishes (usually in pairs) populate the reef for its entirety.
As a second dive in a two-tank trip, Captain Kurl’s leaves the diver with a renewed awe in the miracles of marine life.
