Columbia Shallows with its mild currents, pristine coral formations and grassy bottom provides an incredibly rich and healthy environment for one of the most spectacular displays of marine life that the Caribbean can offer. Stunning rocky outcroppings filled with beautifully patterned brain corals, delicate lettuce corals and exquisite star corals are scattered across a sandy bottom blanketed with fields of turtle grass, green algaes and mermaid fans. Encrusting sponges splash vibrant colours of yellow, burnt orange and scarlet across the overhangs and swim-thrus where nurse sharks and spiny lobster find shelter in the shade.
