The reviews below are true. The shark cave off to the left is great. The opening is a coral canyon that steepens into an overhang that frames the entrance in 30' depth. The first tunnel is about 20' long (10' wide) and empties into a sunlit chamber. The second tunnel is shorter but MUCH narrower (5' wide) and empties into a smaller sunlit chamber but NO SHARK today. :-( Remainder of dive was GREAT. The amount of invertebrate life is amazing. Crown of Thorns Starfish, Helmut Shell Conches, Tuxedo Urchins galore and too many fish types to name.
