Novices will enjoy the rich diversity of marine life on display here, centered around a coral reef that drops down 274 m (900 ft) to the ocean floor. Gray reef, white tip, and leopard sharks are all visible, patrolling the still waters. Look out for stonefish and leaf fish, disguising themselves against the colorful coral. Various tour groups run trips to the dive site, and experienced guides will give you the information you need to have a safe and memorable experience.
