Any of the reefs i haverated is truly dependent upon your dive master. As I have stated before we use a very small dive operationand not a cattle group.

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.

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!
