I went scuba diving here on 5/24/2015. Average viz: 61-70ft/19-21m. Water temp: Over 85°F/29°C.
Heavily dived and snorkeled. A few colorful coral but not many (relatively...depends on what you’re used to), a handful of colorful fish but small and not plentiful. Saw one stingray, one turtle, one super tiny peacock flounder, and one moray. There are a lot of different types of coral but they really aren’t very colorful. Lots of live sea biscuits and we saw a few black grouper, including one very large one hanging out in the shade of our boat.

Better than this was an unscheduled snorkel at a Conch Graveyard. There we saw a logger head turtle, a bunch of blue tang, yellowtail snapper, bluehead wrasse, several large and small parrotfish of different varieties, horse-eye jacks, lots of spotted trunkfish and a puffer or two.

Super shallow dive, 24 feet max, tons to see and your tank lasts forever! Lots of rays and the night dive had huge parrot fish, glass-eyed snapper, crabs and eels.
