This dive site is a great dive site for pelagic fish and divers come here between June and October to see whale sharks. The dive site is not protected and so it can be a challenging dive and so it is only dived by advanced divers.

The site has a maximum depth of 30 metres with most divers averaging around 20 metres. The water temperatures are normally between 22C and 27C and so corals can be found here. The currents come from the south-east and they bring with them surge and rough waves. These currents also change frequently.

Most divers come here to dive with and take photographs of the many sharks in the area. Whale sharks are the most popular as it is rare to find them whilst diving and they are only found in certain spots in the world. Along with the seasonal whale sharks, divers can expect to see silky sharks, Galapagos sharks, and white tip reef sharks. Along with this, divers can see many different types of rays including mobula rays, eagle rays, golden cow rays, and manta rays. Divers have been known to see marlins and tiger sharks on this dive spot. Whilst there is coral here, it is not very extensive and only hosts small amounts of reef fish. The dive is worth visiting, though, due to the high chances of seeing rare pelagic fish and sharks.
