NORTH CHANNEL

About 20 minutes to reach to the North dive sites.

We offer 2 dives a day, one mornings, the second afternoons
A drift and a reef dive per day in general.
Diving hours depends on tides, around 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

No 2 tanks:

  • Dive in the best tidal conditions (moderate current, fauna …), not at fixed hours
  • Flexibility of departures to avoid peaks
  • Longer surface interval (3 to 4 hours) for better desaturation, reduced risk of decompression
    accidents
  • More freedom on the dive profiles (more time at bottom).
  • No waiting on the surface (seasickness, cold, sunburn)

Here are the dives that Kaina Plongée offers:

Garuae pass:

Drift dive school of gray sharks. On the oceanic slope you can see a lot of gray sharks, then we
let ourselves be carried by the current passing through canyons covered with magnificent corals
to arrive in Alibaba (coral depression) where a multitude of fish live such as: big eyes,
snappers, and of course the gray and white tip sharks are also in the game. From this point,
the dive ends slowly by drifting inside the lagoon by making the safety stop.

7 different profiles offered according tides
Depending on the months and moon phases, the tides can generate weak, moderate, rarely
strong currents.

Good experience recommended during high tides. Beginners can also apply for certain drifting
profiles. Our experience allows us to anticipate current forces and to offer you dives adapted to
your level.
