Big Fishes Deep Reef Sharks Wall
On the south side of Madivaru island in the Rashdoo island is this worldwide famous site for Hammerhead Sharks encounters. The reef formation is spectacular and quite confusing, as it has two pools with sandy entrances, forming like bridges at 15m, with the pools at 20 to 30m.
This dive site is really spectacular and many life can be seen here. On a normal dive there is the manta point at 9m with the proper current. If there is no mantas, eagle rays will appear. On the eastern side where the reef slopes down grey reef sharks and white tip are feedinbg, also schools of barracuda. Is in this wall where the scalloped hammerheads can be found even in schools of 50. To see them is very important to go on a early bird dive, maximu 6:30 to 7:30. They come for cleaning, and stay from 30 to 40m. Usually visibility in this side is not very good so is possible to swim into the blue a little bit and go back to the reef. Don't try to go deep as the wall goes down to 200m.
On the south side there is a sandy patch with garden eels where lots of vampire triggers swim. For this dive is very important a safety ballon and a compass, as is very easy to be disorientated.
