Awesome place with tons of aquatic life. I was unknowingly about 2ft from a Scorpion fish taking pictures of Coral and ended up only seeing it in my pictures later.

Tons of nurse sharks! Our divemaster brought a bait tube and fed a dozen or so, letting us pet them as they swarmed around. They’re like puppies - just wanted to play!
