“Tremendous Tarpon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Night dives with silver eyed escorts! These fish are awesome, but almost made me jump out of my skin when they slid alongside me and my son when we went for a night dive. They are just trying to take advantage of the light I believe, for hunting, but they are so huge (5 ft. or so) and spooky looking it is hard to keep that in mind.

“Always a good spot for a night dive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Be aware, BDA has gated off the dock so you will need to enter from the shore. Don't let that put you off, this is an excellent spot for a night dive with an easy entry.

“Bari Reef - great night dive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

Perfect easy shore entry for a night dive - definitely recommend. Entrance to the reef for people NOT staying in the condos next door is to the left of the condos that are to the left of Buddy's.

“Amazing number of fish in this "dead area"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

We love this area. It is easy to get into to either snorkel or dive. Although some coral is trying to make a comeback, mostly dead coral supports a surprising number of large and small creatures. The collapsed pier attracts a variety of things to watch! After going someplace else, we always end the day with a dip into Bari. We stayed right across the road so we just walked over before or after dinner. We are planning one last snorkel in the morning before our plane leaves - hoping for an eagle ray!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Great snorkeling spot for those non-divers! Also great for a nice beach day with sandy areas to lay and enjoy the day.
