 Additional Information

English (Translate this text in English): Dive site is southern tip of the Atoll. Closer the Island the area is a fairly easy dive but move away from the shore and the bottom drops away quickly and you can encounter strong currents being whipped around the tip

If there is a current then the dive quickly needs more mature outlook to it

Can be some big stuff waiting around in the current
