Slightly challenging entry due to walking quite a distance along a rocky bottom during low tide.

Great entry through a canyon that opens out into a drop off. We followed the current, with the shore on our right. The land opened up into a large, 45 degree sandy slope from which small eels stand up, pulling themselves down to hide as you approach. Some large puffers followed us in convoy for a while across the sand, which was really cool. Large, well camouflaged stonefish. Some really cool small fish swimming inside a flat-topped hard coral.

Swam back against a gentle current along a shallower part of the bank.

A very enjoyable dive.
