Evaluation

*Average:    3.20
The best thing about this site is the ease of entry. You park across the street from the marina, and walk off the boat ramp right into the water, with coral rubble and sand at the bottom. There is a mild amount of trash in the marina area, a few tires, a few marine engines, but not too bad. The fish hanging out by the disused pier are fun to look at and swim through. The swim out to the reef is quite short, but as has been mentioned, it should be done underwater to avoid unpleasant interactions with boats. However, the reef is clearly under stress. We went north from the entry site for 30 minutes, and the further north we went, the more brown algae was on the coral, and the fewer fish and other critters. Saw hardly any shrimp. A fine dive, if you are new to scuba and want to get used to being underwater in a more controlled, calm environment. There are much better spots otherwise.
