Comments Overall very good diving in warm clear water with some current dives but not overwhelming. Wide variety of beautiful fish (though not huge schools). Interesting fish and crittersl, eg. pipefish, red-lipped batfish, toadfish,dragon pipe fish, sea-horses.

Nice wreck on CX53(not sure of name) Current keeps boat clean, and lots of holes in every space for the squeamish. Balls of baitfish with Jewfish and Groupers hiding within.

No surprises.. Excellent value for the cost, both the diving and the "Everything included" at the hotel.
