Comments As stated in earlier reports, the majority of reefs are covered in algae and are in very unhealthy condition. Due to these conditions, very little marine life present. This also contributes to very few photo opportunities. If you enjoy diving these type of reefs and swimming thru coral foundations and holes, you may consider the diving good. However if you like to take photos there are some opportunities, but very limited.
