We snorkeled in this area and saw so many nurse sharks and a few stingrays. A bit intimidating at first, but it was fun and safe! The water is beautiful.

No, you can go with your own boat but you must pay the fee for being there. There’s a national park employee present in their own boat collecting the fee.
