Comments I wish I had known before hand how great the diving was there. Would have taken more film. Pigmy seahorses, Ghost Pipefish, Scorpion Leaffish, and many more. Guides delight in pointing out the macro stuff. It has to be one of the greatest dive spots I have ever experienced. The reefs are alive and teaming with soft corals, sponges, and reef fish. It costs a little more than most, but when you look at what you get, it is well worth it. This is one dive resort that everyone must dive at least once in their lifetime. I guess it would be best to do it last because if you do it first, all others will pale in comparison. Definitely a "Do Again" place.
