Tauchplatzbeschrieb:Description of dive site:

On the west point of the island we find this divesite, where you usually encounter strong currents.

The entry can be quiet tough with high waves, the reason why his spot is not suitable for novice divers.
In bigger depths, you should watch out fort he strong downstream current which leads away from the Island. From the entry point you descend down to the max. depth of 38 meters.

Diving a multilevelprofile you reach the reef top again heading southwards ascending along the steep slope. You might come across a strong counter-current at the edge. Here you should turn
back.

On the reef top you swim with a gentle current. The boat will pick you up, after you safety-stop.




What to be seen:

Due to the occasionally strong currents on the edge of this island, encounters with bigger fish are not rare.

Tunas, big spanish mackrels and triggerfish are often seen here too. Apart from nudibranches and sea weed you can find sea snakes on the top of the reef.

The coral reef is very nice here and consists mainly of hard corals.
