T-Wreck

The shallow reef top at 5 meters is a feeding ground for the resident schooling bumphead parrot fish, so keep watch when you begin your dive or when doing your safety stop towards the end of your dive. Located on the northern tip of the south atoll, T Wreck is a slanting wall that plunges deep.

It is quite common to witness reef mantas wandering around as an adjacent dive spot is a known cleaning station. Whale sharks have had an occasional appearance as they roam around.
