La Faille St Etienne, Tahiti

Nice opening in the reef. A lot of verticality when arriving on the Tombant St Etienne. Very lively upper part of the drop-off. Many fish and turtles. A wonderful dive, especially with good visibility.

This site is full of many colorful tropical fishes but you will certainly also meet a sleeping turtle in the nooks and crannies of the drop-off.
