From your sea side suite, you’ll be able to dream about the reef at night and explore this majestic underwater world during the day.
There are over 500 species of fish found in the Caribbean coral reefs alone, and many of them are endangered. The Angelfish, Damselfish, Needlefish, Wrasses, Gobies, Groupers, Parrotfish, Bar Jack, Balloonfish, Cayman Seahorse, Cubera Snapper, Great Barracuda, Red Lionfish, and Silversides are just a few of the notable fish that make their home in the Caribbean Sea.
Popular sighting include sea turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, nurse sharks, jew fish, moray eels, dolphins, and humpback whales. The manta ray and spotted eagle ray are fairly common, and divers can reasonably expect to see many of these magnificent creatures. Hammerhead sharks, Caribbean reef sharks and even the oceanic white tip sharks are seen occasionally, but these lucky sightings are rare.
