A short ride from the harbor...it’s. Great place to reacquaint yourself with a dive. Lots of sea critters (puffers, guitar rays, stone fish, eels and more)

Our dive shop came here. It is easily 15 minutes by boat. We were diving underneath and on top were 100s of kayakers, water taxis, pleasure boats and rent a boaters. Hundreds of people. Not like the picture.
