Eel Garden – Artificial Reef / Drop-Off
The dive starts on a shallow sand plateau were hundreds of garden eel are sticking their heads out of the ground. Dive parallel to the shore heading east, you come along a coral slope which levels at around 18 meters into the sandy sea floor.

The vertical, thoroughly covered color full coral wall flattens out 200 meters marking the end of this dive.
