- Great scenery. Lots of channels/tunnels from a sandy shallow through the reef to the drop off. We had good visibility of at least 25m. Good corals, a turtle, some rays and in the deep blue a (quite sure) bull shark was waiting for us.

- Decent wall with swim throughs into the reef. Nothing particular spectacular though. Visibility was not quite amazing.
