I went scuba diving here on 8/10/2013. Average viz: 36-40ft/11-12m. Water temp: 81-85°F/27-29°C.
Started at the "Black Forest" and travelled over to the "Royal Gardens". Saw two big Sea Turtles next to each other. Had a little problem clearing my ears. The strap came loose on my tank. A lady from Japan fixed it for me on the bottom, so I could continue the dive. That was very nice. This was a good place to take pictures.

Wall dive. Saw a lot of Feather Stars. Saw a couple of Turtles and a large school of Jacks. Slope down to a wall. No current. Nice dive site.

Lots of coral and plenty of fish to see. Sea Turtles can be seen here too.
