The gentle, sloping wall of Silver Gardens is filled with impressive colonies of elkhorn and pillar corals where small schools of blue chromis, Bermuda chubs and horse-eye jacks weave in and out between the formations. A rich blanket of gorgonians, sea plumes and sea fans spreads across the reef, providing safe haven for a superb diversity of marine life including green and spotted moray eels, snappers and hamlets. To the east of the buoy and intricate maze of narrow channels and pathways wind their way through the 6m/20ft shallows of the reef. At 21m/69ft spiny lobster and channel clinging crabs hide amongst the larger coral outcroppings that are decorated with a vibrant display of encrusting sponges together with pretty cup and flower corals.
