In the local language, this dive site translates as “big shark channel” and it is a fantastic site for pelagic fish. This site has a remarkable abundance of ocean life and so offers some spectacular opportunities for some great photos. The coal on this site in the Felidhoo Atoll is not the best to be found in the Maldives but this does not mean it is not a great dive site. When the currents are weak, the marine life is still out in large numbers and there are many varieties for divers to spot.

The site is a relatively deep dive, as divers start in the main reef section at around 5 metres and then drop off at the channel entrance at around 30 metres. The channel section on the left side is sloping and has some great overhangs. This section is absolutely covered in both soft and hard corals and so is a perfect spot for excellent photos. This section is also at a shallower level of around 9 metres to 22 metres. There are also many smaller caves, canyons, nooks, crannies, and crevices that can be investigated along the channel.

The channel is home to many eagle rays and larger fish such as Napoleon wrasse, tuna, and even sometimes Manta rays when the current is flowing out the channel. But it is also home to many white tip reef sharks and black tip reef sharks. At around 33 metres, there is a cave that is home to grey reef sharks and on further exploration, there are a number of other caves that also are home to many sharks.
