Sea Conditions

Shielded from winds, the current is still deceiving…Do not take Claude for granted.



Depth 10-18 meters, with drop-offs reaching 25 meters down. A small round reef with a long coral formation on its southwest side. Best to stay close to the reef to appreciate macro life. Ridges of pinnacles. Interesting swim-throughs and narrow canyons.
