Nice Drift

Had a great drift dive on this site. Saw lobster walking out in the open, a reef shark swimming, titles and a huge green moray. Very relaxing dive site - no need to go deep.

Again the current was so fast, I whad to work hard to keep from being swept away. We have done this one several times, but guess we were lucky with slower current before. Still saw lots of lobsters(huge) 6 ft nurse shark and turtles.

We saw nurse sharks every time we visit Cedral in March/ April. Current may be fast or slow, but you'll see great life every time, including eels, Splendid toadfish, and turtles.

This was a drift dive that was excellent! The current was quite strong and pulled us through beautiful coral and abundant wildlife. Turtles, nurse sharks, lobster, crabs, and every type of fish you can imagine. They all seemed bigger than other reefs so it seems the protection is working.

This reef is at its best when the morays rule. We have seen more here than anywhere. Did not get to visit this year, and I am feeling the lack. I like the way this locale connects the dives and the island.
