This was my favorite dive on the trip. The entry is not only easy, it's also a lot of fun and very beautiful. There's a platform there, and the ladder makes it really easy to exit. There's almost no kick out to the reef, so don't count on a leisurely swim to shore to be your safety stop, if you need it. We were diving, but I would imagine that it would be a great place to snorkel, too. We swam to the right, and we met a huge green moray who swam all the way out from the reef to say "hello". GREAT!

This was my second time doing this dive, and I really enjoyed it. Once down the steps, the entry/exit is a breeze. It's not too long of a kick out, and you're there. Very nice viz, and an overall relaxing and fun dive. I would definitely recommend it. And don't be put off by the steps! Honestly, it's just not that bad!

I was scared about going back to this site because the last time (the only other time I've been there) I found the entry/exit very difficult. However, this time we knew to walk out next to the concrete slab and then float out quickly. Boy, was it worth it. The formation and shape of the reefs are dramatic -- awesome. It was exhilarating. It deserves its reputation as a "must do" dive.
