Dive Madivaru

In the afternoon on the 5th we dive the Madivaru dive site just south of the Conrad-Hilton resort on Rangali Island. The tide is flowing out so we drift dive. 

Oriental sweetlips

During the dive we spotted Turtles, Moray Eels, White tip shark and to top it all off, a Manta Ray. She came suddenly upon us and majestically swam past us against the current. The corals were not too great, understandably due to us being on the outer side of the atoll.

The visibility was abt 10-13m. When surfacing we notice the dive boat some 500m distance off and it eventually took the crew 1.5hrs to find us.
