Great experience viewing marine life - variety of fish and vegetation and the corals. What amazed me is how a large red snapper fish had built some symbiotic relationship with another relatively smaller fish and they were permanently moving together. Get the snorkels and the goggles and try swimming with the fish. It is an amazing experience.

A marine park with all the tropical fish that comes along with it. It is advisable to visit it with a tank on your back. The entrence fee is 20 USD for non residents. If you go diving with Barracuda Divers, they will get it for you.

I remember the unique fish i watched through the bottom of the glassed boat,the lovey corals and kind and responsible boat operators.The variety of ocean activities like water sports and swimming still lingers at the back of my brain,keep it up and continue making the place environmental friendly.

Loved feeding the fish and swimming in the deep sea. Our lifesaver was very friendly and he taught us so many things about marine that I never knew about. The different and beautiful species of fish crowned the adventure
