The second dive was plentiful with fish eels, and white tip reef sharks. Guides were very knowledgeable and helpful for novice divers

Imagine seeing turtles, sting rays, and sharks. The whole cast of finding Nemo floating above and below you while you float weightlessly like your in space. Absolutely incredible!
