This dive site is a great drift dive site that normally provides divers with the opportunity to spot giant manta rays. The dive site is made up of a plateaued reef that then slopes down to a vertical wall.

The depth of the site goes down to over 40 metres but divers normally stay at around 20 to 25 metres. Visibility is quite good and can reach 20 metres although it averages around 10 metres. The currents are normally moderate and provide enough energy for divers to drift along the vertical wall. The surge is normally mild but closer to the shallows it can pick up.

The wall is covered with many different types of coral, including black corals. Quite remarkably, divers can sometimes black striped salema on the wall and these can sometimes be schools of over a million.

The giant manta rays are often found out in the blue sea away from the wall. Divers should be able to also spot mobula rays and eagle rays on this same dive site. Divers can also see hammerhead sharks, Galapagos sharks, and white tip reef sharks. Other types of marine life found here are creole fish, big eye jacks, grunts, surgeonfish, parrotfish, pufferfish, and boxfish. Sea lions are also common visitors and they are normally very friendly and curious about the activities of divers.
