Depending on the wind and wave conditions you can often find large mats of sargassum weed on the surface at Smith’s Cove.

This seaweed is home to frogfish, nudibranchs, seahorses, crabs, shrimp and many different species of juvenile fish.

This was my favourite spot to start and end a dive, as I could hang out with predators such as barracuda basking in the shade underneath.

The mid-water column below is home to a full range of tiny, colourless microorganisms, which are invisible until they pass by your mask with the much larger ctenophores (comb jellyfish), tunicates and salps.
