"I've swum in the waters of half a dozen Caribbean islands, but never before have I seen such a vast array of marine life in one place. Rainbow parrot fish and yellow tail snappers, blue-spotted damsels and striped sergeant majors, four-foot nurse sharks and playful stingrays - I feel like an extra in a Discovery Channel special.
