Swim out to the best part of the reef is somewhat challenging. Two mooring buoys mark the deeper part of the reef. Zig zag patterns coming from the deepest part of the reef and moving inland provide some great diving with good reef relief, a few swim throughs, and abundant reef life. Large surgeon fish, turtles, tangs, and triggers were abundant. Make sure to leave enough air time to swim back in to the beach submerged as the long surface swim and strong surge can be an issue.
