Took a catamaran from our property that was for members (including RCI) This was a smaller boat than the 75 passenger and much nicer. Very festive sail but ocean under the water breath taking .

We took a catamaran cruise to snorkel at this marine park. It was amazing! The reef has sustained some damage, but overall it is in good condition and there was a lot of wildlife! We saw a lot of colorful fish, and a few jellyfish. The reef is large and we could have spent our entire week there snorkeling! The... More

We took a catamaran snorkeling trip to this marine park. The water was absolutely beautiful and the fish were amazing. We even saw some rather large lion fish. The water was nice and clear and the temperature of the water was perfect. We were there the last week of January 2014.

This is a pretty reef with lots of sea life. It was disappointing that I saw discarded cans and bottles. Not totally surprising as it is usually a stop for the so called "booze cruises".

We were able to snorkel in the marine park. It was so cool seeing the bed of fish come to the top when you threw either a ripe banana or bread in the water.

Our Dreams catamaran stopped here so we could go snorkeling. My son was tentative then next thing I knew, he was in the water with me. We saw lots of different fish along with some sea urchins. The ocean was a bit rough so we didn't stay long but it was a great experience!

The fish are plentiful, but the coral has been seriously damaged. Still, when the water is clear, you can see 100 feet.
