Vis was 12-15 went out on the west side of the pier some very cool big coral mounds to explore and lots of bunches of fish. the waves push you around a bit as it is shallow a long ways out.

I went scuba diving here on 1/25/2015. Average viz: 11-15ft/3-5m. Water temp: 71-75°F/22-24°C.
Water was extremely cloudy which was understandable due to the weather and time of year.

Yeah I loved it! The only thing that held me back was this was my first ocean dive and i was severely underweighted. It made the trip horrible but overall i recommend it. I had a great time.
