March 2008 Dived with Coraya Divers and they also did short trips so you didnt have to be out on the dive boat all day. Pristine sites, hardly any divers and loads of dolphin!

February 2010 Dived with Coraya divers. Great set up with a house reef you can dive unaccompanied if 25+ dives. Speedboat and zodiac from the dive base, day boats only 10 minutes away.
