Did a dive here at the end of a liveaboard and enjoyed it, the main attraction was the chance to see a dugong but unfortunately not on my visit. That said it was a pleasent dive and not very challenging

It is a wonderful bay, if you are lucky you will see the turtles, sea cow and dolphins. This is only when snorkeling , diving is another story a totally different world and amazing creatures.
