Midway Dive Sites

PHOENIX        35 to 80 feet         Intermediate
A fun dive with several geologic features.  The mooring is located near the hidden entrance to a large dome inhabited by rare Black Trevallies, Squirrelfishes, Spotted Burrfish, Deetsie's Cardinalfish, and Scott Johnson's Phyllidia.  A tall mushroom-shaped outcrop to the west provides shelter for Bigeye Trevallies, a Whitemargined Moray, and Hawaiian Turkeyfishes, and a large canyon to the east is home to Crosshatch Triggerfishes, big Whitesaddle Goatfishes, and Masked Angelfishes.  Subject to strong currents.  Fifteen minutes from the harbor.
