The easiest entry is off the local dive shop docks. Check-in with them before suiting up, of course! Watch for small boat traffic. A dive flag is recommended.

My wife and I dove 1 out of 14 days. We did a shore dive for this one. I've dove in a lot of different locations in the world and this was very nice right from the dock. This dive is a challenge. You can start out at the end of the rocks, around 18 ft, and then we stopped at 85 ft. It just kept going, so be careful! Head West (Right) out of the opening and drop to 60 ft, about 50 yards away you'll find a bunch of stuff to look at, it's a barge that was sunk with a crane, a bunch of cars and trucks, some telephone poles, some large I beams, concrete blocks, cables and other stuff. Sponges grow in many different varieties, about 10 or so. We saw large schools of small fish. i.e., there are a lot of small fish on this reef, large ones are a rare find. No sharks whatsoever, only a couple of jelly fish, three different varieties of moray eel, a number of Caribbean spiny lobsters, 1 slippery lobster, 1 straight sea horse, lots of puffer fish, cow fish, and lots of small reef fish. There is an abundance of plant life here to look at. Over all a nice Drift dive. We went from here down to the Breeze's hotel where we were staying about 1/3 mile.

When we got to the dive destination we were greeted by nice people who wanted to show us some of the neat things this dive had to offer. It was a so-so dive that could have been better in different conditions
