Snorkeled here twice on different days, a slight current pushes you northward so do not go too far away from shore. Watched a dive class show up in a white unmarked van and 6 students and one instructor went the same time we did. They started their dive on the left on a sandy bottom at 30ft and we turned right to follow the better corals. Ran into a turtle around the area of the Westin's Hotel. Played with an octopus just 15ft over from the turtle. The colors of the corals are vibrant! Not a whole lot of fish life, just small stuff. I definitely would come back here for a night dive! Note the photo of the entry/exit is real old, it doesn't show the Westin Hotel at all.
