Good variety of marine life, we saw white tip reef sharks, octopus, loads of fish and several types of nudibranches. Also the shifting sands was amazing, at about 40 feet.

Take a glass bottom boat from the marina to lovers beach and they will take you by pelican rock. It is very smelly as it is full of sea lions, but it is very cool to see
