Taking a dive into the Pacific Ocean is a truly amazing experience. With visibility ranging from 10 to 45 feet, many factors, such as tide and the amount of nutrients in the water, play an important part in attracting which and how many species of fish inhabit the area. Ideal conditions are from December through May with the best visibility and when the Giant Manta Ray arrives to feed and get cleaned by the reef fish.Temperatures range from the mid 70's to the mid 80's and sea-depths measure between 40 to 90 feet. The area is the scene of historic volcano activity and the resulting rock formations are the natural habitats of diverse species of hard and soft coral. The Whitetip Reef Shark is commonplace here, and during the day, are usually found resting in the labyrynth of underwater caves. Additionally, you might see moray eels, lobsters, octopus, ocean steeds, nudibranch, pad ocean stars, enormous schools of different fish and beams and lots, lots more.
