I also know this site as "Harry's Hole;" it is the "house reef" in front of the Sunset Waters Resort. Nine of the twenty dives I made here were at night. Entry is very easy in the man-made lagoon. Numbered markers make UW navigation easy, particularly at night. Great reef life, and a good chance to see octopus and seahorse. There are a few pelagics, although I occasionally saw a hawksbill turtle and one young eagle ray. Ask about the seahorse(s) at the Sunset Divers' Shop (on site). You can rent your tanks there as well. The hotel staff will allow you to drive down to the beach to drop off your dive gear, but you must first ask at the desk. Great macro opportunities for photographers. Be wary of unpredictable current (could be East or West, and sometimes strong). If a strong current is running east, you'll be diving toward "Mako's Mountain" which is nice, too, but strong surf in the spring makes the western part of the reef a little bit shabby in places. The airplane wreck is much over-rated, but it makes a nice landmark for ending your dive. See recent pictures of the reef life at my web site www.geocities.com/amy_laz . You may want to eat at the resort restaurant, as the food is really good and there is often live entertainment at dinner time.
