Submitter Comments:
Dive is straightforward swim out of the cove and head down. This is a wall dive with lots to see. Skill level, great easy dive no difficulty so even if you are new it will still be doable. Some fish visible, sharks and turtles a possibility.

Directions:
 18 degrees 28.63 minutes North 77 degrees 27.636 minutes west. If you have a GPS the coordinates above will lead you to it. If you do not then just drive along the north coast (east to west) past Rio Bueno just before Braco you will see a restaurant on the seaward side with a big sign that says "Yow's" drive in and park. Walk to the coast turn right, go to the small cove and dive right in. Buy a RED STRIPE beer when you get and support their kind accommodation of divers.

04/01/2005 Christopher Gordon (Avg: 4.05 Review) - One of my personal favorites. Fairly easy shore dive from a scenic and beautiful Yow's. Beautiful wall, vis generally good-excellent 70ft+, diverse and abundant marine life. Gorgonians, coral, occasional pelagics such as sharks, fish life include snappers, parrotfish, angelfish et cetera. Check the weather report before you head out, with high winds and waves, site is un-doable.

03/18/2005 Gruvenfuker (Avg: 3.33 Review) - Beautiful wall dive, with a wide variety of coral and sponge life... some fish present..snake eels, turtles maybe.

03/18/2005 Gruvenfuker (Avg: 3.98 Review) - Great dive no matter the level, depth no problem! Great food and cold drinks await on shore. Secured parking and not much of a crowd.
