Himmafushi Corner

Himmafushi Corner is a drift dive, best suited for divers with a lot of experience as this dive is deep and can have strong currents. The corner slopes from 5 to 30m and after that comes to a small drop off to 45/50m. This dive should only be conducted during the incoming current.

In the strong current you can have a lot of pelagics: grey reef sharks, schools of jacks and tunas, napoleons and different rays.
