This iconic pass at the southern end of the atoll is renowned for its shark population. When the tide is incoming, dozens of grey reef sharks (up to 300 individuals on one single dive!) can be seen along the right side of the pass, at 28m.

At the entrance of the pass, you’ll see a profusion of small and large reef fish, including bigeyes and marbled groupers (they breed here in June and July). Other attractions include white-sand gullies, where whitetip sharks usually lie, as well as healthy coral formations in the shallows at the end of the dive.
