“Didn't see much”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Came here on a snorkelling tour and didn't see much, even the experienced swimmers who dived down didn't see much. It was all reef and virtually no fish.

“Such beautiful structures”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Granted this was only my fourth recreational dive, but I have never been anywhere so beautiful and other worldly as this reef. The tall cave structures are incredible, truly awe inspiring. We saw such a wide variety of life here it would be silly to try and list it all. I can't wait to dive here again!
