This dive would have been lovely if the viz was better (very windy today with rough seas) THE BOAT ALWAYS MANAGED TO MOOR UP IN THE BEST SHELTERED AREA OF THE REEF, but the Eagle Wray made up for that lovely

It is a wonderful bay, if you are lucky you will see the turtles, sea cow and dolphins. This is only when snorkeling , diving is another story a totally different world and amazing creatures.
