Unusual southwestern swell due to tail end of Hurricane Tomas meant that most southern sites had tough entries and poorer-than-usual visibility. Meant unusual opportunity to dive here. We parked with 25 yards of entry to left side of lighthouse. Decent path to water, good entry marked with various driftwood pieces. After a few rocks at surf break, can walk some distance on smooth sandy bottom. Then a 5ish minute swim to the reef. Slight current from east, easily manageable given conditions. Plant life probably the best we have seen in Caribbean: rods, gorgonia, etc., all over. Usual fish, several giant green morays. Three dolphins cruised by. Swell had picked up a bit at end of dive, but easily manageable for experienced divers.
