This was my second dive here in as many weeks. The first time I was happy to see a shower for rinsing gear (and sandy children) but, alas, on this dive there was no rinsing, water was shut off. The entire operation of the park seems to be suffering from an economic downturn but the admission is still by donation (I suggest 3 to 5 bucks per visit). The surface swim to the buoys is a bit of a distance at 300 yards but there is plenty to see once you can get yourself under water and before I knew it I was at the reefs. Visibility was crap. This time of year it usually is but I had fun with the small critters and practicing navigation skills. There was some boat traffic. I carried a float/flag. Be aware that the local LDS has pretty restrictive hours, like they open at noon on Monday and are closed on Sunday.
