- Strong drift - Use reef hook.  What you see depends on your luck (we weren't so lucky - few sharks and few fish shoals).

- Nothing special in this location if one does not dive in the close location of Nautilus which is an organism which lives in the deep waters and are brought to around 5 meters just to be seen and returned back.
