Tatawa Besar is the typical drift dive most just love! 99% from NW to SE.

 

Dropping just outside the coral garden with clear sighting of the reef

 

Things to see: 4-5 m sponges, sharks, turtles, mantis shrimp, nudis, white/ orange soft coral blown up by the currents.

 

When ending the dive to the SE, manytimes we meet a thermocline and counter current sneaking around the SE end of the island. There it`s time to go shallow to the coral garden, rich in colour, sometimes quite curious with the different light waves chopping images into crystal like bits like a caleidoscope.
