Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Lava Dome

The most unique coral head on the coast! Standing about 30' high the lava dome is a volcanic rock covered in plate and knob coral. It is an amazing sight to see a coral head that is hundreds of years old. Beyond the dome, coral fingers stretch out to a ledge called Pink Floyd (after "the Wall"). This is where schooling fish like to congregate, blue dragon nudibranchs are common, and the big guys often cruise by.
