“A beautiful reef!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Spectacular coral formations, big animals-sharks, rays, ginormous lobsters, crabs, groupers and oodles of turtles, as well as small critters-starfish, sea horses, and spider crabs.
Fantastic swim throughs and cracks to explore.
Amazing!

“Scuba diving”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Loved it, it was beautiful!! It was my first diving experience, and I will be spoiled for life. We used 2 seperate diving companies and they were both great. The sea life was amazing and the swim throughs were breath taking.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

I went there to go diving and it was amazing! I liked the reef and there was a lot of fish. It is a really good place to go for diving and snorkeling, you can go there with all the dive companies.
