The Staff is very friendly. The basin is fairly open with areas for new diver training. The cavern looks like a construction zone, and blast area, but it is interesting to dive. For those with enough training the cave adds extra dive enjoyment by taking you down to 110 feet in water that is Gin clear and about 68 degrees. Reaching the gate you turn around and ascend the cave into the cavern and enjoy the swim throughs and fish.

We had a large number of students on this trip that really screwed up the viz. It was beautifully clear before that though!

Great dive, good location for training or just brushing up. There isn’t much to look at unless you’re cave/cavern certified, but the water is gorgeous and
