What can you say that hasn't been said already? This is a great site all around. It doesn't matter if your new or very experienced, this dive site has the best variety around. You can go deep and visit Bi-Colored Antias or stay shallow and look for the elusive Steindachners Moray. It doesn't matter. Your gonna love this site. Entry is easy, but painful if you time it wrong, so take your time and count your sets. Avoid using other entries other than 2-step. Green Sea Turtles feed on the algae covered rocks nearby. If you use these areas you may be destroying a food source for them. Keep an eye out for Dolphins. They may want to check you out.
