Emboodhoo Express is the name of the channel entering South Male Atoll towards Emboodhoo Island Resort. This drift dive was fairly rapid and just as the thila appeared the current veered us away from it into the blue. Hanging in the blue you may be lucky enough to see Grey reef sharks circling below you. There are clouds of surgeon fish, and eagle eay swoop over the reef. There are also many hundreds of beautiful small fish among the soft coral, making this site a photographers dream. I spotted a family of Napoleon wrasse, schools of batfish, and hunting tuna and trevally.
