 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Diving around a small volcanic pinnacle jutting from the ocean about 20minutes by boat from our Centre, you generally plunge straight into a school of barracuda. Dropping to a depth of between 12 and 18 metres puts you onto a small plateau where you feel as though you are floating in an aquarium. There are mostly hard corals at this point with many giant clams, and the area is teeming with a large variety of tropical fish, anemone, clown trigger fish, manta rays, trevally, napoleon, tuna and moray eels. Schools of fusilier follow us around as we weave our way around The Rock. At 18 metres a wall of soft corals begin as the Advanced Diver drops off the plateau and this is where the reef sharks like to hide out. Visibility on this dive is always a minimum of about 30 metres; this is without a doubt the best dive in Samoa (at least so far!).
