“Deep for beginners”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

As usual, when you go this deep you lose colors and life, but we found some big fish hanging around down there. Super close to the shore, especially of you are in Sandy Bay. Go early, it gets crowded!

“Great dive at 110 feet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

The wreck of El Aquila (The Eagle) is a great adventure dive. Visiibilty was excellent, and we were able to swim through the wheel house and another part of the interior safely. Lots of good-sized groupers added to the fun.

Basic and safe dive in great visibility. Lots of big groupers. Some dive boats feed them, but not ours.
