 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): At the lower rim of the channels entrance there's a small area without current. If you go higher you'll be pulled into the channel. If you go lower there's a washing machine with a strong downdrift which will pull you to +50m in no time. So better refrain from swimming next to the big fish out into the blue or you'll end up somewhere deep before you notice. You'll see big schools of barracudas, tunas and often groups of eagle rays Sometimes seasnakes, whalesharks and hammerheads. But also sometimes there's just nothing.
