Aguadilla Court House Wall Dive

This dive site has a steep slope of coral that runs parallel to shore. Word has it that the visibility at this site is generally poor, less than 30' because of a river near by. There is a fair amount of silt also present. When we dove it we had a great day with 50' vis. We gather that current can be present at the site. Save enough air so you can swim in on the bottom. Swim out for 10 to 15 minutes. The coral starts near the edge of the slope in about 25' of water. The bottom of the slope is about 80'. Past that and its all sand. The slope generally runs parallel with the shore but has fingers that jut out and back again. The reef may be shaped like a crescent. I saw turtle on our dive but no lobster. We saw a fair number of eels.

See how clear the water is. Katrina enjoys some sun after the dive.

We parked across the street from the beach.
