This didn't get much of a write up in other reviews elsewhere. However, I must have been lucky as I saw great reef life including seahorses. Not much big stuff though. Need to go deeper to avoid the worst of the swell. Beware exit and entry as the swell from the reef is considerable. Trou d'eau douce bay is also known as wales.

Wreck of a little open vessel (maybe 15 m in length) lying on sandy bottom. Lots of fishes in and about the wreck. Abundantly lionfish, scorpionfish etc. Near the wreck there is a community of garden eels. Good for photgraphy. There is no buouy or any other marker so this divesite is hard to find without local knowledge. The wreck is visible from surface once you are on top of it.

Mauritius

Heavy stuff! Going in, when the tide is pulling out the water of the lagoon and flying at a speed of 5-10miles/hour heading for the open sea. You feel like diving in a washing machine and you have to work hard to keep control between the rocks! A lot of stinray, eagleray, grey reefsharks and bullsharks in rather bad sight. You suddenly dash into groups of sharks and a moment later you have passed them, hard to imagine what you have just seen. Passe St. Jacques is also known as Washing Machine.
