Variety of coral, fish and sea life was amazing! Pretty clear water. Drift diving is the best! Get neutral and just enjoy the scenery as the current takes you over the top of the reefs. Experience this one more than once.

Creatures aside, the Cedral sites offer incredible vistas of coral formations. Large grey angels, grouper, hawksbills and the usual.

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.
