  • We went in December, a rental car, we get easily with help of Waze. The tide was at 0.7, some two meters deep, were of catamaran, takes about 20 minutes or a little more to get, are 7 km out to sea. It is all very beautiful, translucent sea, beautiful fish and coral. A tip: check before Board of the tide, the lower the better, and before walking away from the platform, get used to it a little with the snorkel. Then just enjoy! Worth the ride!

  • Love the ride! Even with the weather a little bit cloudy, it totally holds travel by boat to the middle of nowhere, and keep water at the time of cinnamon in the middle of the ocean. Thousands and thousands of fish swimming around you!
