This dive site is unique to the region as it offers an excellent opportunity for divers to see hundreds of Galapagos garden eels. In addition, the site is also a cleaning station for white tip reed sharks. This is a very popular dive site and is one of the dive sites found on North Seymour Island.

The dive site is not that deep with a maximum of 30 metres, and divers average around 15 metres of depth. The currents can be quite strong here and there can be surged. It is recommended that only divers with more than 20 dives should dive here.

Divers start the dive on the eastern part and usually are drifted along with the currents. There is a rock plateau and it is here that divers can see Galapagos sharks and large numbers of fish. At about 15 metres of depth, there is a large sandy area and this is where divers will find the large group of Galapagos garden eels. Further along, divers will be able to see many hammerhead sharks and at the cleaning station, white tip reef sharks gather to be cleaned by the many wrasses living on the reef. As with other dive sites in the area, divers can also expect to see sea lions, penguins, and sea birds all diving into the water.
