Western Shoals was once the most popular harbor dive, but the last several typhoons have left it severely damaged in some areas. It is slowly recovering, however, and still offers a great dive.
Western Shoals is an easy dive, is easily accessible, and has consistently good diving. It has a sloping reef with small crevices, schooling fish and many anemones. There are several large crevices as well that hold interesting sponges, reef fish and invertebrates.
The top of the reef is covered with vast colonies of staghorn corals that are home to thousands of small reef fish.
