Evaluation

*Average:    3.33
Dove this last week. Worth the trip South from the hotel district. Rented tanks from Mermaid dive shop on the North end. (Wendy was extremely helpful.) There is current, but it's manageable. Worst case scenario you get pushed into the bay and have a long walk. We kicked to channel marker buoy, dropped into 10' of water, headed to the reef (30 yards), descended to 60' and headed South against the current for about 20 minutes. Current helped us back in. Other postings are accurate about sea life, vis was 50+ feet, but this changes daily. NEW WRECK ONSITE. Small cabin cruiser sunk in 30' of water (inside the bowl, sandy bottom). Very easy to find, visible from shore by a small buoy, maybe 50 yards from the mangrove. If you're diving, do the reef and finish with the wreck. Sorry to hear about the thefts onsite, it only takes a few bad apples to ruin the bunch. Many thanks to shorediving.com
