 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): You can dive from the lagoon and let you drift to the pass to finish your dive in the ocean.
In the pass, you will see big fishes like tunas, barraccudas or sharks.
There is a lot of current. Stay deep at the beginning. Choose the areas where you want to stop (some large holes deeper protects you from the current and let you have a nice view to the fishes).

I saw my first grey coral shark (2,5m) there.

All the sites have been named by a passionate diver well known in Mauritius Ben Cadet since 1990 when he first open his dive centre at hotel Ambre.
