We went in at Buddy Dive and dove to Bari and back. Amazing how the life changed in that short distance! Well worth the dive. Some areas you could spend 10 min just in one place watching.

Teeming with fish of al colors. We snorkeled the reef and saw tons of different fish. All colorful and full of dance and play. Maybe next time we will dive!
