Vis is improving due to zebra muscles. Winter vis 40-75ft fall vis around 30-40. Summer best is mid week. Friday-Sunday vis drops. This is the best Tonka video I have yet made. Http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HuV4wNIGdY

The shore diving was just average, nothing unique. The whole of hwy 1 up and down the Keys looks very similar to me. To really see what this park has to offer, you have to take the guided boat snorkel tour. That takes you several miles offshore. This park has in my opinion one of the most amazing shallow reefs to see. Full of larger fish and lobsters. Keep in mind that this park fills up and closes once full head capacity. And also that the guided boat tours don't run if weather is bad.

We went on the protected side of the island. Vis was poor due to the February winds, but once we got out some distance it was ok. This is a big island, but it seemed the interest spot was two large boulders about the size of a car that attracted small fish. Bottom content was sand with turtle grass. I liked the experience, but if more than a dozen people it could get crowded. I think the windward side of the island would be much better had we gone there. I still would return, but other Caribbean spots stand out better for just about everything. Some nudist activity made it odd for me to take my kids to the windward side, but that is common throughout the islands.
