Comments Six days of diving, wonderful being in the water, however there was a definite lack of color among all the corals, some bleaching as seems usual everywhere now days. Not a great assortment of fish either. The water was very cloudy and there was an overgrowth of brown-green algae over everything. We are wondering if this is a world-wide phenomenon? A few people who dive often said they are seeing this throughout the Caribbean....

We still enjoyed being in the water, and Sunset House takes great care of you. Had a few wonderful encounters - a huge Eagle Ray came right past us, and a couple times swimming Moray Eels.
