CHANDELIER CAVE

Dive Site:
  A Cave system made up of five separate, connecting chambers with air pockets (4 are water-filled)
  Over the millenniums rainwater, percolating down through the limestone, eroded the interior of the islands forming vast cave systems
  Chandelier Cave was once an open-air cave
  The stalactites and stalagmites slowly grew into formations resembling glittering chandeliers
  After the last ice age the water level slowly rose, completely concealing the cave's entrance
  3 depth charges from WWII can be found to the left of the entrance
  Halocline inside the cave (mixing of salt & freshwater or sediment creating a layered effect)

Marine Life:
  Soldier fish and Cardinal fish inside the cave
  Small shrimp and crabs that cling to the sponges found along the walls
  The elusive Mandarin Fish & other small reef fish around the cave entrance
