    Rates vary by room choice, as well as seasonal discounts in off-peak times. But social media is not the appropriate venue for availability questions, please contact us for individualized service.

    Not rocky or coral. What you see is turtle grass. It just goes 10-15 ft out then the water is clear all the way to the reef. Great snorkeling.
