The reef is in ok shape. I have seen better. We saw a potted eagle ray, various fish. We has 10 snorkelers and it seemed too crowded with people kicking you in the head with fins. All tours go out at 9 am and 2 pm. So at any time there are about 20 boats there. The different groups seem to run in to each other and in general, just too crowded.

It made for a very nice day on the water. We traveled by catamaran aboard 'Seaduced'

We got to see a whole bunch of different species. And the water was a good temp to spend an hour or 2 in without a wetsuit.

Hol Chan offers great snorkeling and diving near the channel. Turtles, nurse sharks, grouper, sting rays, and thousands of other fish abound. When diving near the channel, use caution for the current. Night dives offer octopus!

Tons of fish, sea turtles, sharks and rays. A beautiful reef , a feast for you eyes. We did not want to come up for air. The most amazing clear water and coral in every color and shape. This is a must. Hope they can keep it protected from peoples hands. It is a amazing wonder of the world.
