We stayed in Fantasy Island from 04.30. to 05.06 and did 5 dives on this site, which is also often called 'Gazebo'. The entrance is easy and you can't miss the wreck if you start from gazebo and follow the cord. Or you can swim on surface to the red buoy and go down once you reach it. The night dive we did was a disappointment cause the water was too murky. We then changed our tactics and started diving very early in the morning, starting at 5:30 to 5:45 am. In the morning the visibility was excellent. The wreck itself is not too interesting, though you may see some silversides nearby and, of course, the residential black grouper who owns the place. So do not stay there for too long. Do not go to the airplane wreck cause there is almost nothing left of it. Instead, from the PA wreck go across the sandy bottom toward the Coco Island, and very soon you will hit the coral wall which is very much worth exploring. On its left, the waters are shallow, and there are some isolated coral reefs there with angelfish, filefish etc. Go right along the wall, and you may encounter some huge crabs in caves there. Overall, highly recommended, especially if you start early. Daytime can be crowded, and in the evening water can be messed up. Oh, and watching the sunrise is another bonus of early morning dive.
