The wall itself is overgrown with coral, sea fans, and large sea sponges that attract many colorful small fish.

Divers ... The Half Moon Caye Wall is a well known dive site described as "6,000 feet vertical abyss". This exquisite wall is unmatched by any other place in the world and offers a unique diving opportunity. Divers will be able to see a diversity of marine life in canyons, including corals, garden eels and some of the most spectacular sponge formations. Larger pelagics such as stingrays, sea turtles and sharks are seen swimming in the blue. The coastal forest, consisting mainly of the orange-flowered Ziricote tree found in the western part of the island, represents a small, endangered and fragile habitat that grows according to soil type and height above sea level. It supports what is considered the only Booby Red-footed breeding colony in the Western Caribbean. The Booby colony supports the stability of the forest by supplying guano as fertilizer. The colony can be seen from an observation platform located in the forest.
