“Great Reef for Diving”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Explore this reef and see many types of beautiful coral. It is an easy dive. Great for new and intermediate divers or the occasional diver. Advance divers will still enjoy it's beauty.

“Beautiful by Glass bottom boat”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It was a nice ride to the site, but the boat was very hot. No AC even though it stated in sales ad that it was.

“Molasses Reef”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

You can snorkle the shallow end and dive anywhere. There is more sealife here than in other countries where we have been diving- we once saw a devil ray!
Grouper, tarpon, snook, ...almost all the reef fish listed in my big book!
