Prepare for the adrenalin rush. This channel is quite large and although it can be hard work finning against the current, the action that can witnessed makes it worth the effort. Squadrons of eagle rays can be seen ‘flying’ in formations, schools of barracuda congregate near the corners and sharks can also be seen passing by. If the currents are running well, expect to see large numbers of grey reef sharks. If the current is more gentle, take your time and look around the sandy channel where there are often stingrays lying. There is also a old, coral covered anchor close to the Felivaru side of the channel.
