How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
The local government pier where fishing and diving boat depart and arrive during the day. As a dive site it would only be recommended for the lovers of the small, weird and macro as visibility is often limited to under 5m. However, for the macro lover and photographer it is a treasure trove. Some of the local dive shops offer it as a night dive.
