This dive is on the Thilafushi Reef. The currents coming across it can be steep, but things are much calmer on the reef itself, which is why it attracts some may fish to feed in the area – big blue fin jacks, big tuna, big marlin and shoals of smaller fish making up the gap in the food chain. The name suggests there are going to be sharks but there aren't as many as there used to be. Now the appeal is the big fish, as previously discussed, and the caves, edges, walls, ridges and half tunnels and canyons the coral has grown into here, making for an interesting and colourful diving terrain.
