Mirihi was excellent. Relaxing, fun, beautiful, enjoyable. We spent 8 nights in the water villa. Mostly during the days we either were diving or snorkeling on the house reef. Evenings were spent watching the sunset from various vantage points and enjoying dinner at the restaurants.
We did do the whale shark snorkel which was great. The captain found 2 whale sharks, one of which stayed on the surface, around the boat, for about an hour so we had an excellent time watching this gigantic fish from in the water.
The dive center is really excellent! Chino was our dive instructor, and she was perfect for us. I had tried to take a diving course before and never felt comfortable, but Chino made diving comfortable and of course fun and interesting. The dive sites were fascinating, from big fishes like sharks and tuna to little nudibranches as well as just thousands of gorgeous little fishes and beautiful corals. We had a great time, thanks in large part to Chino, as well as Florian who lead us on our first non-instructional dive. If you are looking to get certified this is a really good place to do it. These people know their stuff, are good, patient instructors, and the underwater scenery is worth seeing. I highly recommend this dive center.
