A great dive site, much more interesting than the closer Conshelf site (only interesting because of the Cousteau's historic experiment and wonderful hard and soft corals).
Here you find everything! From the tiny sea slug to hammerhead sharks, jacks, tunas, etc.
I am amazed that 2-5 kt is a "moderate" current: this is absolutely impossible to do anything but drift! Actual currents are less, and you can stay on the reef.
I saw a tiger shark.
