I am never disappointed diving Cedral. There's always a good chance you'll spot a nurse shark here and a big green Moray as well as turtles. We saw so many on our last dive a nicknamed it 'turtle alley'

At only a depth of 40 feet, you see so much marine life! We say an eagle ray, nurse sharks and grouper which were almost five feet long.

This is a great drift dive with a good combination of reef creatures and good scenery. We saw nurse sharks and an octopus.

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
