Queen's Throne, a mini wall or terrace where coral pinnacles rise to within 17 ft. of the surface, is a shallow dive with a maximum depth of 50 ft. approximately 300 ft. south of White Stroke Canyon near the Rum Point Channel. Among the many resident sea creatures of this site, the reigning Queen is a large green moray eel that is said to inhabit this reef.
