I was diving with the Seagrape Diving folks (Cleve and etc). The dive is great: you start near the reef, and then swim a bit going down to about 100ft. The boat is split in 3 parts, and you can swim thru some of them....More

Lot's of friendly grouper and a very friendly green moray (at least to me!). Nearby reef allows for gradually shallower dive to off-gas and continue a pleasant dive.

Or dive on a wreck, great dive especially for first time wreck divers. Your boat can moor directly above the site or just up on the reef, either way it is awesome. I have dove on the El Aquila numerous times with "Octopus Dive School"...More

Twisted, but recognizable as a ship. Our high point was running across the resident green morey in the stern section

Don't get me wrong - wrecks are fun to dive. However, I can get wrecks back home in Canada. Reefs, though, that's the attraction.

not a lot of sea life. Big wreck but we really enjoyed all the life on the reef better. Not that interesting of a ship. Ok if you are really into wrecks.

It is a nice wreck but a little deep. Only about 10 minutes actually spent on the wreck followed by 30 to 40 minutes on the reef. We were accompanied by a dozen large grouper in addition to the usual reef creatures. Very good dive.

Nice wreck, easy to maneuver through the wreck without lights or risk of getting lost inside. Very easy dive even at 110ft as wreck is located on a sandy bottom.

Dived the wreck twice. While I'm not a wreck dive fanatic, it was a nice dive. Nothing complicated about it, a hard bottom well within safe levels for all divers and easy to explore. Some very nice grouper hanging around which made it interesting. Worth...More
