To get there from Ponta Negra you spend ~1 hour + 30 min on a boat. It is packed with tourists (~40 per boat). Once you get to the reefs you get pbbly 90 min to snorkel. You can contract the diving at will, which is a great experience if this is your first time. Water is clear and shallow... More

Good price, beautiful way about 15 min on a motorboat to the place of diving. Good explanation and equipment, diving about 2 meters, there are fishes, octopus, fishes are fed there so they look like want to meet you, underwater photo service is good option, extremely clean waters.

This is a very beautiful place and an almost wild beach, with some great reefs at about 30´ shipping from the coast; an excellent spot for both scuba and (just) snorkeling. But something that really disappointed us and probably damaged a bit our experience was the number of tourists and the lack of reasonable services that it should have for... More
