“Not the best, but the biggest reef”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Has wear and tear, as so many people go there.
Was some interesting things there, rays and the like. but there was better to have around the island.

“Beautiful little cove!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We spent the day here and had a wonderful time! Dimples helped us with the chairs & Sugar Lips offered a 2 hour boat trip to the Nylon Pool, No Man's Land & snorkeling. It was a fun day and we met a lot of very, very nice people!

“Fascinating”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

One of thebest reefs in the West Indies which is not well known for its coral reefs. Totally unspoilt and an amazing abundance of brightly coloured fish and corals. Well worth paying for a glass bottom boat trip.

“Damaged, but still a lot of sealife”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

The reefs have clearly been over visited, but there are still a lot of fish and varieties to see. it is clear the fish are habituated, as they didn't seem to mind us snorkelling around and some were quite curious, checking us out, coming close. Part of a great trip with Peter Zoe Tours.

“Through the looking glass”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The sea was calm and the boat ride was made enjoyable by the chatter of our self-styled Captain. We couldn't see the fish clearly, but the view from the glassbottom of Miss Jo, the boat, was quite good. My wife got sick from looking down in a heaving boat. It was nice to see the seaweeds and I liked what the captain said when some of the weeds had golden tinge to them. "you will feel precious seeing the gold there", he said.
