Fushivaru Kandu is a large and deep channel with a sandy bottom, which, with a small ingoing current it is possible to cross from one side to the other. Although it can be hard going, finning against the current to cross the channel, the results can be amazing! Eagle rays swimming in formation, families of grey reef sharks, occasional silvertip sharks and schools of jack fish and rainbow runners fill up the channel crossing. A large napoleon wrasse and a school of barracudas can also be found here. Under the right conditions this will be one of the most exhilarating dives you will ever do!
