the good - did do a snorkeling trip to airport reef although it was only 10 minutes from our hotel- but wow-what a change in marine life-we saw eagle and sting rays and tons of fish coral was average but still attractive

the bad- it took me ages trying to get a trip together
the park simply does not have an organised center
we went to the headquarters on pier one
and was directed to local boat guys-doing
an hour trip for 35 usd. destination /reef unknown
doing internet research there are key snorkeling reefs -unity ,seaworld.coyoba - these should be marketed together as1 trip last half to full days as in other parts of the carribean/asia etc
unforturnately i think the drive is more towards water sports
which is messing up the reefs

There is an on-site dive op @ Sunset Beach Resort, Kelly's Water Sports http://kellyswatersportsja.com.
These guys were great and so convenient.
The divemaster Wayne was happy to allow an extended dive if you have the air. I had second dives that were all over 50 minutes. One was and hour and 5 minutes.
I can't think of a single bad thing to say about the people @ Kelly's Water Sports.
The dive boat would probably take 6 max. They said they had a bigger boat being readied for diving. They also said they were planing on offering NITROX in the future.
The dive sites are better than expected. They look like they're coming back and as good as many other spots in the Caribbean. I met an eight foot green moray eel on my last dive.

All n all I'm totally satisfied with my diving experience with http://kellyswatersportsja.com/scuba_diving.html Kelly's Water Sports.

We swim out to the marine park from Doctor's Cave or Sunset Beach at Dead End Road. The swim takes a while so not for the beginner, but there's lots to see on your way out. The other way out is to take a catamaran tour and they stop there as well. (which is also very awesome!) If you swim out, make sure you have a diver's flag with you or even a bright life vest. You can see a lot of bright fish and if you can make it down, often hidden surprises between the coral.

Beautiful fish and pretty cool coral. Easy to get to. We went on the Dreamers cruise and they stopped here. A really fun time!

The snorking was great, in the area that encompassed the marine park. The only problem was we never got to the Marine Park facility it's self, no one seemed to know where it was
