Wife and I went 10-1-16 we had heard a lot of good things about it, That’s about it. The place is Very beautiful on top of the water but very busy. Paddle boarders, Swimmers a lot of aquatic activity. The visibility was 1-3 at very best. We got wet about it not a place I plan on going back to.

Went here for a dive with Sugaland dive Center. I had a lot of fun. One thing I remember is we would come up from diving and Jets from the Houston Airport would be flying right over us it was Awesome!

Not good vis on 8/10/2013 (1-2’). My guess is the vis better in Winter/Spring and not when large classes have been in the water. The good news is that there a lots of underwater attractions and lines tied between them to make navigating easy.
