I wish I had read these previous reviews. I was talked into going with some snorkeler friends to the island, figuring I could take a tank and just follow them at a lower depth. That was pretty easy to do, but the dive was really depressing. The area has such potential, but it looked pretty bad. I don't know if divers/snorkelers or the hurricane or the fishermen have done the damage, but they really should protect the area better. I can imagine it could be quite the wonderland if it were left alone for a while. If you take a local charter out there, take lots of sun screen and sea sick pills if you are prone to that.
