Description dive spot:
As the word "channel" implies, this is a channel leading into a large inner lagoon.
Due to the tides, this is a partially strong current, which can only be done in good conditions, since the visibility can be bad very fast due to the water movement.
Although the dive site offers many large table, mushroom and funnel corals, it is otherwise unspectacular in comparison to the other places. Since the current is partly strong, there is little time left for the many small creatures to marvel at.
