 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): This reef starts from 2-3 meters and drops to 10 meters gradually. After 10 meters most of the reef drops vertically down to 25-30 meters.
Outside of Manta season this is still a very attractive site with a high concentration and range of life. Along the reef top you can always find the moray, scorpion fish, octopus and large napoleon wrasse., red toothed triggerfish sometime seem to obstruct the view of the surface due to the high numbers present on this reef.

Ce récif commence à partir de 2-3 mètres et descend à 10 mètres progressivement. Après 10 mètres la plupart du récif descend verticalement vers 25-30 mètres.
En dehors de la saison Manta en février c' est encore un site très attractif avec une forte concentration de vie faune et flore. En haut du récif vous pouvez toujours trouver la murène, poisson scorpion, poulpes et grand napoléon., Balistes à dents rouge semble parfois obstruer la vue de la surface à cause du grand nombre de poissons présents sur ce récif.
Les Mantas sont dans la passe et dans le courant il faut s'accrocher au corail mort. Certains utilisent un crochet de boucher pour s'accrocher!!
Ne pas se battre contre le courant vous videriez votre bouteille très rapidement
Il existe des bouteilles 15L à Malé pensez à les réserver en Europe lors de la signature du contrat

Infos via Pierre - Vous êtes à la limite du tombant qui descend à très grande profondeur.
Vous êtes là pour les Mantas au mois de février.
Attention au courant certains fabriquent des crochets pour se retenir au corail et ne pas se faire emporter!!! (crochet de boucher)
Faites des aller-retours le long du tombant pour voir les Mantas qui ne sont pas profond elles se gavent de plancton qui lui est en surface.
Certaines fois elles sont même en surface et on les voient du Dhoni durant la navigation!!
Une fois en février elles n'étaient pas au rendez-vous et donc les Maldiviens nous ont amenés sur un de leurs sites secrets que j'ai appelé Manta Passe.
