Port: Taiohae, Nuku Hiva, Marquesas Islands
Duration: 2 Hours
This dive has the unique opportunity to dive with scalloped hammerhead sharks – they usually gather around a big rock at the entrance of the bay among jack fish, tunas, manta rays and more. Therefore they are very shy and there is no guarantee to observe them and due to the richness of the water in terms of plankton the visibility is limited and sometimes reaches only 20 feet (6 meters).You will embark into the dive boat from the gangway and receive your safety briefing on the way to the dive site. The boat ride is about 10 minutes. Upon arriving on the site you will gear up and roll into the water as a group. There is no reference line to descend, and the current and the swell can be strong so this dive is offered only to very experienced divers with at least 50 dives, recent diving experience and holding the advanced diver certification.
The maximum depth of this dive will be around 100 feet. After the dive, you will be transferred back to the gangway.
