Landed here on a Sunday, forgot the bit about avoiding it on the weekends. The locals were friendly and kind. My daughter made a friend and had a lovely time snorkeling with her while we were diving. We had a leisurely swim out and followed the chain for a while. There are some encrusted boat parts, but nothing too exciting. The reef was lovely and we had a great time until the daughter towing the buoy decided to go deep and snap the line. By the time I realized and surfaced, the buoy was drifting off in the wind rapidly. I ended up swimming about 1/2 mile to get the stupid thing. I almost gave up, but I had put my dry bag on it with our phones and keys. So much for that great idea! The entry is lovely, you could do a stride off the end of the pier or you could ease in at the steps depending on your comfort level. Exit was easy, just like getting up a boat ladder. I can see why this site would be dangerous in surf and lovely for a night dive. The shower was such an incredible amenity!
