This park was so beautiful. Our family really enjoyed it. There is a $7.00 entery to park but that is for a whole day which you cannot beat. They even have picnic tables for picnics.

My friend and I went out on their new snorkeling service. Just 6 people made a delightful trip out. The sea fans, finger and brain coral and fish were the most spectacular I've ever seen. The two guys were super friendly. A great day!
