Comments This is a nice shore diving operation for cruise passengers and hotel guests. Both dives are on the hotel reef. First to the left and then to the right and back to the hotel beach. Very nice corals and even some sea horses. Small fish since the container fleet cleaned out the Caribbean. This is a protected reef area and a nice change of pace with some beautiful girls on the beach. Their equipment is excellent and the staff is very good. For what's left of the Caribbean this is a nice shore dive. Far better than Club Med's best off Cancun beach which is Cancun's best. Not as good as Little Cayman, St. Lucia or Grenada, but better than Antigua and shore diving off the hurricane damaged Cozumel beaches.
