Embudu Express

Embudu Express is famous for its current which can be up to 5-6 knots at times. Divers first go down straight to the edge in the middle of the channel and wait at 25-30m. The sharks and eagle rays come closer and closer.

Possible sightings are hammerheads and guitar sharks, grey reef and white tip reef sharks, eagle rays and stingrays, big barracudas, and groupers, plus schools of jackfish and napoleon wrasse.
