The swim to the boat isn't that long actually. Say about 30m? Not sure about the water depth as the water is not too clear close to the shore. Suffice to say that you can't walk over to the boat and must know how to swim.

I forget the exact price, but it was around $100 CAD per person, for 3 dives that included lunch and equipment rental . One of the best deals I’ve come across. The place is run very well also
