The typical dives here include a by all standards a very nice coral garden that is worth the 1,5 hour boat trip. There is also a surprisingly long "cave / tunnel" to swim through inside the reef.

Dive sites ok, but you can not dive near the dolphin area. The dolphins are in a protected bay, a rubber boat will drop you off, ( snorkellers only ) about a 100 metres or so away from reef, so you have to swim to the edge of the bay which is roped off and hope that the dolphins are... More
