Comments Sea Life everywhere my wife and son went. Turtles, Sharks, Squid, anemone shrimp,and all the rest of the amazing fish and coral. Couldn't have had a more amazing 1st Dive trip. Great Dive Master ask for Gabriel.

Unfortunately we found a dead snorkeler floating face down near one of the dive sites. She probably had a heart attack as she had snorkel and mask still on. It took an hour or more for the authorities to get the body from us.

Will definitely go back,but won't stay at the palace. The all inclusive thing is really too expensive unless you drink all night every night. Food was ok not great and the bonus points program sucks(read the fine print if you decide to go there)

Also we used aqua safari's photographer. She was great very energetic. Check out pictures at
