This is a been there done that dive. Once around this small aquarium and you’re done too. Only 2 divers at a time and not a great deal of maneuvering room near the bottom, very controlled diving and free to move about. A large number of cownose rays, angel, and other fish and you can bring your own GoPro or one is provided for you. Take your own video and it’s $25.00 if you want to keep a copy of the video. Did see several lobsters and bleanie. Also fed the rays which is not a great idea because they swarm and then pester you. Friends can watch you dive and you can have up to 4 divers during a time slot.
