What can be easier than leaping into the water? We did two dives here, plus a snorkel with our 7-year-old son. The shallows have been blasted pretty clean of branching corals and sea whips by Hurricane Omar, but we did see lots of parrotfish and a few morays in this bowl under the ladder. It is a very short swim to the reef, which drops off steeply. Coral life is rich and healthy here, with many sponges. We saw numerous species of fish, plus got to 'buddy' with a hawksbill turtle for about ten minutes on one dive. The exit is easy to find due to a mooring buoy and the ladder; ladder was missing a lower rung late in the week which my wife found to be a difficult exit. One of our favorite sites.
