Ferry Channel

  • Dive Type: Shark, wall
  • Max Depth: 30m
  • Avg Depth: 14-18m
  • Visibility: 10m to 20m, depending on swell, surge and wind.
  • Level required: Open Water / CMAS*, Advanced OW or CMAS** preferred because there’s quite a bit of stuff to see beyond 18m/20m
  • Description: This site is situated just in front of the Padang Bai bay. There is a mooring to which the boat attaches itself, go down from there on a shallow plateau, turn southwards until you reach the edge of the plateau, nice slope down to 20m, turn east and follow the slope/wall, there you will find 3 small caves with resident sharks. Go a bit deeper and you find some more caves. Then slowly swim back towards the shallows going north-westwards.
