I work at the Breezes Dive Shop so dive Oswaldo's almost everyday. Breezes entry is off limits to non-guests but you can also access through Kontiki Beach next door. No point going deep on the reef - best life is 20-40 ft. Current usually runs East to West meaning you can only reach Car Pile (to the West of Breezes) when current is low. Better option is to enter from Marie Pampoen, public beach next door. Can go as deep as you care to at Car Pile. Usually see turtles, cuda, and thousands of balling silversides - v. cool. Reef in not bad condition considering number of divers.
