The actual dive site can be reached by local boat. The dive starts in a shallow area of 3 to 8 m in a wonderful coral garden. You may encounter turtles and Bumphead parrot fish. A moderate current will guide you in approx. 20 min to the drop off's edge. One drop offs drops straight down to 30 m. It is beautifully grown with soft coral and any possible species of reef fish can be found there. White & Blacktip reef sharks swims pass occasionally checking out their feeding ground.
The highlight however is an area at 27 m of depth with a sandy field full of blue-spotted stingrays. The other drop off is only 25 m deep, ideal for the subsequent shallower dive.
The dive site features a pinnacle, which erects from a depth of 25 m forming a scenic swim through in 20 m. At both drop offs your 5m safety stop will be highly entertaining. Both dives are drift dives with a mild current, with outrigger boats following the divers. Both are very comfortable dives.
