Evaluation

*Average:    2.59
Many of the people I dove with enjoyed this dive. I didn't like it at all because the dive started literally at the manmade mouth of the harbor. As such it had obvious markings from where it had previously been dredged. At the beginning of the dive there are lots of old tires that have fallen off of utility boats and other obvious boats buoys. It is called Something Special because they found whiskey bottles that had contained 'something special'. Again a garbage dump. There were various pieces of pipe laying around as well as an underwater web cam with its concrete and cabling running across the coral. Broken reefs, sailboats and sailboat moorings are all around and above. The structure of the reef is just unmemorable; straight down the line and straight back. Nothing to really grasp the eye. Did see two eagle rays here.
