Comments We did 24 dives over 7 days, including several shorebased house reef dives.

The Bad: Vis was a bit limited at some sites (under 50 feet max). Not many fish were greater than 8 to 10 inches long.

The good: The diving was easy and the house reef offered diving as good as most of the sites we dove from the boats. Lots of small fish at all the sites we visited.

This is an excellent destination for newer divers as there is lots to see, minimal currents, and the ability to dive the house reef 24/7.
