Half Moon Bay has been a place of recreation for many people for the last 80 years. Known for its great grouper fishing and sailing, many generations have enjoyed it. Previously known as locally as Doha Dhalum with an average depth of around 22 feet (with a few spots dropping to 50 feet) Half Moon Bay has been an excellent classroom for thousands of divers learning the sport of scuba diving. It is a very forgiving bay, with shallow entrances and very few large sharks.
