Excellent dive through the Mushroom Forest ending in the The Blue Room Cave. Simply put, spectacular! Dove with Ocean Encounters which was top-notch. Crew was helpful, knowledgable, and extremely customer focused!

Nice easy dive of about 12 meters or 35', lots of coral and tropicals, very slight current. Start the dive at Mushroom by boat and then work your way to Blue Cave for end of dive. First amateur dive video attempt so be nice with comments! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0m4hl_nkP4
