I was very pleased with this site. In the past, I had only been to Baby Beach and De Palm Island. I would say it was about as good as Baby Beach but overall the fish were a bit smaller. Watch out for boat traffic as Red Sail sports and other outfits stop here. In addition to accessing this site from the road, I did a Red Sail sports excursion that went here and to the Antilla. I highly recommend both sites! The Snuba looked like a waste of money and I am glad that I didn't do it.

I was worried that Baby Beach would not be as good as it was in previous years after Ivan came through but to my surprise, it was better than ever!!! I saw more types of fish here than ever. The cove still looks about the same although there are large mounds of broken coral off shore in a few places. Really blows my mind how it got stacked up that high. It seems to me like a lot of the area just outside of the cove is shallower than before and I still have not found the actual "reef" in 20-60 feet of water. When I venture out to deeper water I get a bit nervous as it is just my wife and I out that far and I must not be in the right spot because I never actually see the reef. Great spot for snorkeling as was Boca Catalina.
