"Turtle Reef / Macabuca (Left & Right)"

Reviewed Jun. 20, 2017

This site is right by Macabuca / Sundivers.
We dove here twice and both were fantastic! I feel sorry for anyone who hasn't had the pleasure of diving this location!

When going left, we swam through a large cave with tons of motionless tarpin. Saw lots of other marine life along the way. We had ave. depth 45' and max 60'.

When going right we had similar depths and saw a ton of marine life: free swimming spotted eels, yellow ray, eagle ray, lobster, turtles, a big drum fish.

Would highly recommend. Had a nice lunch onsite as well.

"Turtle Reef South"

Reviewed Jun. 18, 2017

Headed left along the reef. Depth got to 58' and bottom temperature was 82F. There were 50+ Tarpon hanging out by the reef. It was an incredible experience to slowly swim though the school. Also saw big Drum fish, File fish, and banded arrowhead crab. Terrific dive when there is minimal current. ... Show More
