The most difficult part of this dive is getting a dive shop to actually loan you gear to shore dive. The currents around the island can be very intense and dive shops are hesitant to let you go out there on your own. I managed to get a few dives in at Coral Gardens and the place is spectacular, a wonderful reef with great fish life and some unique artifacts sunk down there (mostly huge cement blocks used as anchors). If you are getting certified at one of the local dive shops, this is usually the first dive they take you on-- all the remaining dives are off bancas (small outboard motor boats). Most the dive is 15 to 30 feet, but the reef continues out to 50-60 feet or so.
