Definitely will not be my first choice for future shore dives. I'll go here again only if ALL other sites are closed. Despite other reviews which said this was a great dive site, our experience wasn't that great. Although they have a trolley to help you get your gear to the beach, you have to pay for it. $1 for each trip up and .50 for each trip down. And, as if that's not bad enough, they charge to transport tanks and or bags. Once we reached the beach, perhaps we entered at the water at the wrong location; however, getting over the reef even at high tide was difficult at best. I literally had to crawl over the reef with my BC fully inflated while trying to avoid doing any damage to the reef. After that, we navigated through the reef maze to reach 25 feet of water. Stick with snorkeling at this site!!
