The Kinks is a scattering of patches of coral heads along a white sandy bottom. It has abundant marine life and good visibility (usually about 75 feet). Many divers come to the Kinks for night dives. The inner edge of the reef is at 38 - 40 feet. The outer edge lies at 42 - 51 feet. With a maximum of 55 feet, the dive is well-lit and very colorful.
At the south end of the reef just below the mooring buoy, you'll find a small ledge that's usually home to either a big crab or a small nurse shark. Local divers report that the crab and the shark are fighting a turf war, and the ledge changes ownership frequently. The day we visited this site, the nurse shark was there (see photos).
Sea creatures to look for are green morays, spotted eels, hawksbill turtles, lobster, crabs, hogfish, damsels, squirrelfish, and angelfish of all kinds. The occasional shark and remoras have also been spotted at the Kinks.
