The dive site Santa Rosa can easily be split into three separate dives. Its profile becomes larger and more convoluted the further North you travel. As in any exposed area, the southernmost section is low-lying and scoured by currents. The middle section has some very large tunnels which completely cut through the reef crest, and the most northerly section has tunnels, caves, overhangs and under-hangs and some sections of wall becoming so steep they are near-vertical, also better known as the world known dive site Santa Rosa Wall.

On the steeper slopes there are numerous rope sponges. File clams can be seen in the recesses, their orange or white tentacles waving in the current. Many species of hermit crab can be found and there appear to be thousands of tiny gobies and blennies flitting in bursts over the corals and sponges. Barracuda and large specimens of the back grouper which shelter under the overhangs above the reef crest can always be observed here. Stoplight parrot fish seem to blend into the multi-colored reef.
