Sea Star Channel is ideal as training site as we begin our dive in the sandy shallows at around 7ft, we weave our way through the shallow corral heads to the west and down into the channel. The channel got its name from the abundance of cushioned sea stars that lie in the base of the channel. This is a good area for spotting southern sting rays which on murky days are many. Follow the channel out, keeping the slope on your right hand side, the sand slope soon turns into coral heads which multiply until you reach a shallow wall at around 25ft. Follow this till you reach an entrance between two coral heads which take you into a wide canyon bowl. Around the entrance we have seen eagle rays on numerous occasions. The middle of the bowl goes down to around 80ft and the topography inside changes into a rocky environment, look under the rocks for toadfish. After exploring the canyon bowl, take the same route back.
