Resident moray eels, numerous sharks, corals, etc. One of the best shallow dives on the island. Would dive it every day if I could! Great for photography.

Once again Aldora Divers made our experience memorable. They took us to the best spots and we were always the first or second boat in the water. Great job!

It is a light current dive. Tons of life: huge parrotfishes, angelfishes, groupers and cowfishes, turtles feeding on sponges, nurse sharks swimming. Really worth seing. http://youtu.be/ak_DMve3rck http://youtu.be/CDd1QjfLj3w

This site has you swim across the top of a flat wall around 50-60' deep. We saw nurse sharks, huge lobsters, and a large turtle.

Si quieres ver tortugas, morenas, langostas, meros y tiburones de arrecife, este es el lugar. Es plano, no hay muchas formaciones y tiene poca corriente. Revisa siempre debajo de los arrecifes, donde veas cuevas, encontraras muchas sorpresas. (If you are looking for turtles, eels, nurse sharks, lobsters and groupers this is the place. It is plane, no spectacular reef formations,... More
