Route: Deep South St Johns
Deep, deep in the south (in the near of Rocky Island) are the St. John's Reefs.
Because of the long distance, this reef group is quite virginal. You will find here exciting drop offs. The wall of one of the reefs is overgrown with big gorgonians, the wall of the other reef is overgrown with all kind of colorful soft corals. You will find here a lot of fish and in the blue you can see with a little bit luck "big fish" like hammerhead, grey sharks, silvertip and whitetip reef sharks, barracudas, tunas and mackerels.
Sometimes even you can see mantas and dolphins. It is possible to reach St. John's in one week, but you are going to sail a lot (mostly in the night) and the time is very short to dive at all the reefs in St. John's. Because of the long distance, it is advisable to decide to do a 10 or 13 days safari-cruise.
