An exciting and thrilling drift-dive starting on the outside-reef and ending in the Gulhi Channel itself. At the channel drop-off corner where the current is at its strongest we hold on to watch the sharks playing with the current. Very often some of these white-tip and grey-reef sharks are getting very close to the divers. Not just sharks - also big stingrays and schools of eagle-rays sometimes approach out of the blue water.
Of course we will never get fed up by all this action but the no-decompression -limit forces us to let go and we drift with the current into the channel. Either you go along the reef where you can search out some nice caves and washouts for stingrays before finishing the dive at the top of the reef - or you chose the blue-water-ascent, always ready for some surprising experiences. Only dived under special current conditions and it is not recommended for inexperienced divers.
