Comments Small dive shop with a short drive (half mile) to the marina. Had to carry dive gear about 100 yards to the boat. The boat was spacious and well-equipped, including a head and an upper deck that seated about six. Thirty minute ride to first site, which had mostly soft coral swaying in the mild current. Not much hard coral and associated marine life. A so-so dive site. The second dive was to a marine preserve and was beautiful. Sea grass, on which several turtles fed without fleeing from the dive group. Colorful hard and soft coral harboring lots of small marine life. As good as I've seen in the Caribbean. We encountered a fleet of four spotted eagle rays and some larger fish. Unfortunately, it was a mixed group of four inexperienced divers, who needed a lot of hand holding and stirred up a LOT of bottom sand and one jerk. Those are things that the dive operation doesn't control. The dive master apologized to me afterwards. Very good folks.
