This reef is excellent for scuba or skin diving. The colorful fish, corals and sponges are like a kids crayon box. I enjoy drift skin diving with the current - the scuba divers add to the visual pleasure.

We dove with Rainbow Reef Dive Center and they took us to several places on Molasses Reef. There is plenty of sea creatures to see and lots of places to explore.
