The widest pass in Polynesia - about a mile long. World renowned for its biodiversity, it is famous for currents, sometimes strong. A dive in this north pass will be an unforgettable adventure. For reasons of security and visibility, dives are conducted in slack water or with inflowing currents in accord with the tides and with your diving experience. You never know what you might come across. Giant specimens can appear at any moment from beyond the fore-reef. In the pass entrance, you will likely run into the famous Raira (gray reef shark) cruising by the dozen in a haze of fish and color. Be prepared for the Ali Baba canyon where the fish gather to shelter from the currents! This dive is from around a 50-70 foot depth. It requires significant experience with strong currents and divers in full command of their buoyancy and ease of movements.
