It is pretty warm in some areas. It wasn't very big and the exhibits weren't very big. Still an enjoyable day for... More

Loves all 21 dives here. The reefs were great. Looks of life. Fish and coral. Not certified, got to Lions Dive and get it done there.

My husband is on oxygen so this was a chance for him to see the underwater world. Fortunately there were only 12 people on this so we all had our own little seat. It says it can carry 30 something but I don't think I would like that. It is a confined space but not too bad with only 12... More

The Park gives informative tours, has a water show of dolphins and seals. Eateries inside. A little pricey

Beautiful reef, abundant marine life, seahorse, octopus, sponge, coral, parrot fish, trumpet fish, etcetera. It has an easy access from shore, so you can swim to the reef without much effort, depending of course of the weather . We went with Ocean Encounter diving, great diving company. Our diver guides were David C and Cherina, and they are greatttttttt!!!

I was glad the reefs were in good shape; they make it clear not to touch anything, and it looks like people comply. We did see a lobster... More
