One Giant Step For Divingkind!
Starting as a shallow reef that leads into the Coral Forest, this triple-tiered drop-off spot plunges over 100 feet down--creating a sight that never fails to awe!
Due to its unusual topography, Triple Steps boasts a wide variety of migratory fish that changes with the seasons... so get down there and see it all!
Flora, Fauna, and Geography
The Steps are home to many species of small fish, including Oriental Butterflyfish, Sailfin Tang, Emperor Angelfish, Yellow Tang, Teardrop Butterflyfish, and Pyramid Butterflyfish, along with a shoal of Japanese Jack Mackerel that swim above the Steps. At night, there is no difference in the species that appear here, making it one of the few areas in the game to have this distinction.
Location and Geography
Triple Steps is, rather obviously, named for the three coral-covered tiers of rock that make a staircase-like natural formation. The marker on the map for this location is at coordinates J-3, situated directly west and slightly south of the Coral Forest (continuing further in a straight line in this southwesterly direction leads the player into Rock Bluff). Aside from its distinctive appearance, nothing in particular is of much great interest to the player in this area.
