Ok so I have hundreds of dives logged and am a bit jaded. This is a good dive site but if you are an advanced diver it could get a bit boring.

“fun little adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

loved this reef, saw tons of barracuda and a turtle! great beginners snorkel and there is plenty of reef to explore. however, its kinda saddening seeing how badly the reef has been impacted by coral bleaching.

“Colorful Coral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2012

While this site is more shallow, it is also one that has beautiful coral. We have seen several Eagle Rays crusing the area too!

“Great snorkeling spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

We just returned from our keys vacation and this was one of the top reefs we visited. Lots of hard and soft coral in great shape. Lots of fish. Saw a 6-7 ft nurse shark gliding by in a sandy area. This reef is doing well despite the numerous companies that visit it. If you visit, please remember to stay in swimming positition. If you need to talk, flip onto your back, fins in the air. If you are upright, you could damage the coral heads. It takes decades for the coral to recover. Coral is millions of living creatures...please do not kill them with your carelessness!
