Red Hind

Diamond Rock is another pair of pinnacles, one of which rises above the water level on the leeward side of Saba. The reef is dived to the maximum depth of 84 feet and then swum in a circle 8 rising slowly up the walls of pinnacles.


As the dive ascends, different reef creatures are found at the different levels and environments. We found this red hind at the beginning of the dive on the sand floor beneath the “rock.” A member of the grouper or sea bass family, it is sometimes called a strawberry grouper. This one was apparently unafraid until I approached very close for the picture and it casually turned and swam off.
