Best reef on the island. Easy entry from their dock. The reef goes from Buddy's, past Lions Dive to Capt Dons. Great for night diving. Saw Octopus, Turtles, Squid, etc…

Entry visibility was terrible. Once we got past the breakers, it was good. 60-70 feet. Nice reef, good small fish and lots of eels. Dive shop at site, make sure to drive past the resort to the dive shop. May want to call the resort first as the first day we attempted to go here, they were closed as they had a large group staying here.

This was our favorite dive site. The dive shop is friendly and the tanks and weights are the least expensive on the island. The beach is good and the restaurant is very nice and affordable. The dive site is a bowl with lots of eels, fish and we even saw rays on all three of our dives.

Good dive site. Easy entry and exit. Dive shop on site with friendly staff. The stairs from the parking area are quite easy and wide. Look for flounder on short kick out.

When the tide is out, you have to climb down the ladder to the water instead of jumping the 8-10 feet. Getting out is an easy climb up the ladder. The dive was quite good. Almost no kick out to the reef. The reef edge is at 15 feet for an enjoyable safety stop. Saw lots of flamingo shells and good fish.

An OK dive site. Located in a subdivision. Pretty easy entry after a 50m walk from the parking area. Reef in just OK condition. Saw 2 quite large fish.

Perhaps the easiest entry on the island. Minimal current, but a bit of a kick out to the reef. Saw our only lobster of the trip on this dive. Good dive with lots of coral and fish.

Easy entry with a long kick out to the reef. Visibility was not a good as the other sites. No idea why as they are close. Fair fish and dive.

Nice dive with easy entry. Pick your spot as this site is about 100m long. There is a boat at 80 foot at the South end of the site. Saw free swimming eels and several colors of trumpet fish.

This was our favorite site during this trip. We dove here 3 times, all with excellent results. Moderately easy entry. Short kick out to reef and excellent conditions. Saw Eels, puffer fish, a large ray and lots of fish.

An excellent dive site. Unfortunately a long kick out to the reef. With the storm a couple of years ago, not much to see until you get to the drop off. Then a nice dive with a double reef system. Saw barracuda and scorpion fish. The second reef is in great condition.

Excellent easy site. Just use the tanks at the pier and jump in. Easy, easy...good place for a check out dive. Saw lots of EEL's, some puffer fish, trunkfish, drummers and large yellow fin tuna.

This site was quite a disappointment. The reef is covered with scrunge (what looks like lots of dead leaves). Minimal fish and not so nice coral.
