What a great site. Fairly easy entry and only a short swim to divable depths. Head anywhere remotely near the center to drop your dive flag off in the sand with a weight (there are several large sand channels near the center). Do not tie your flag to coral (at any site please). Great marine life here. My first impression was the tons of peacock groupers present. Several types of butterfly fish and large parrotfish can be found here too. My personal favorite route is to head out right and follow the reef out to 40 feet or so where many mini-reefs can be found. Turtles (we saw 12) can usually be found more or less in the center of the cove at the edge of the reef (a short swim off shore). Great dive, and what a pleasure to do an hour and half dive and not find any fishing gear!
