The Watamula South and North sites derives its name from the Dutch word watermolen, meaning water mill, because of the how the currents flow in this number 1 Boat Diving Site!! You really never understand what the currents will be doing until you check: sometimes they are flowing North/South, other times South/North and other times they are flowing in a circle!!
Watamula South and North moorings offer the diver an intense and sometimes overwhelming spectacle starting with a hard coral field, then a soft coral patch, then finally ending with another hard coral field! It is so intense that the diver really does not know where to look first! In addition to the mindblowing coral formations, the intensity of the macro life combined with Ocean Triggerfish, Schools of Chubbs and Porcupine Fish will leave you surfacing wanting to don another tank for more!!
