We call it the "soft version" of the famous Embudu Express - especially for not so experienced divers who want the chance to get the thrill of the exciting spectacle Embudu Express offers. To decrease the risk of being caught by the current and drifting over the top of the reef we start the Embudu Channel dive a bit further out on the outside reef and follow the current to the channel. The closer we get to the drop-off the more sharks are approaching out of the blue. Grey reef-sharks - first a bit shy - but later get closer to the divers. Often we also meet white-tips, barracudas, napoleons and schools of eagle-rays there.
Directly at the corner - not in the middle of the channel like the Embudu Express - we hold on and enjoy these creatures playing with the current. Again the no-decompression limit forces us to let go and we drift into the channel with the reef on the left hand side being able to enjoy the variety of fish at this reef during our way up to the surface. This dive site is only dived under special current conditions and not recommended for inexperienced divers.
