I did this dive last Saturday (8-15-2009) and the current was very strong, so me and my dive buddy stayed inside the pool. When we did get outside of the pool it felt like a drift dive in Cozumel. We would have done it but the viz was only about 15 feet and the boat traffic was very bad so we decided it would be better to stay in the pool. I would like to go back soon. We planned it bad and didn't hit high tide. The marine life was good early but as it got crowded it slacked a little. Also, more fishermen came and would make it hard to dive outside the jetties.
