An exciting and diverse reef, San Francisco's sloping wall drops down to 30m/98ft and is covered in encrusting corals, finger corals, tube sponges and scarlet sea rods where porcupinefish and smooth trunkfish find protection from predators. Overhangs lining the top of the wall provide perfect shelter for schoolmaster snapper and French grunts to tuck themselves in out of the way of the current. Sandy plains filled with tubeworms and mermaid fans stretch across the top of the reef where eagle rays are commonly seen during the wintertime searching for crustaceans.
